Dozer Day 2016 will host Evergreen Public Schools students with special needs for an event preview - 05/04/16
Vancouver, WA -- The Nutter Family Foundation will partner with Evergreen Public Schools to host 200 students with special needs for a Dozer Day sneak-preview on Friday, May 20th, 2016 beginning at 10:30 a.m. at The Clark County Fairgrounds (17402 NE Delfel Rd, Ridgefield, WA 98642).
The Nutter Foundation, along with its sponsors, are giving the students an opportunity to preview Dozer Day one day before this annual event is open to the public, at no cost to the students or schools. In addition, the preview is being specifically tailored to address the needs of students with special needs.
Jey Buno, Evergreen Public Schools Executive Director of Special Services commented, "Thank you to the Nutter Foundation for once again supporting Evergreen Public Schools students and creating this opportunity for a preview of Dozer Day 2016. Two years ago, we offered a similar opportunity for our elementary students with special needs and it was amazing! The Nutter Foundation and all of the volunteers create a special, powerful experience for students with unique needs."
The Nutter Family Foundation is a private foundation established in 2006 that focuses on the needs of children; believing that when children are given the opportunity to develop their talents, society thrives.
The Nutter Foundation's primary focus is the signature annual event, Dozer Day(TM), that puts kids in the driver's seat of real heavy construction equipment, fire engines, an ambulance and much more, while educating about building sustainable communities, industry opportunities and public safety. Excess funds generated by the event also provide funding for children's charities.
Photo/video opportunities will be available. The few students who can not be photographed will be easily identifiable, and Evergreen Public Schools staff will be on hand to help facilitate the process.
