Thank you Aditi Myneni, the 10-year-old daughter of Canisius Physician Assistant student Deepthi Krishna. Aditi donated toys for autistic children served by the Institute for Autism Research.
According to her mother, Aditi wanted to make a difference and thus, on her own initiative, began organizing, publicizing and collecting toys from her fellow students at Maple West Elementary School. These toys were very much appreciated by autistic students participating in the IAR’s summerMAX and school programs. Aditi’s compassion, determination and drive to make a difference are much appreciated!
