Amscot Financial presented a $1,000 contribution to the Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida’s (DSACF) in support of its 8th Annual Buddy Walk, scheduled for October 22, 2005. The Buddy Walk is a national event created by the National Down Syndrome Society 10 years ago to promote understanding and acceptance of all persons with Down syndrome. The DSACF was founded in 1992 and works in collaboration with community hospitals, gynecologists, pediatricians and developmental disability groups to provide support, referrals and resources to families when they first learn their new baby has Down syndrome. The DSACF serves Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake and Brevard counties.
Amscot Financial’s contribution will be used to forward the mission and vision of the Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida as a leading voice for individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
