      On Saturday, Dec. 15th, Discover Church in Mauldin will host a
      respite event for caregivers of children with special needs. Free
      childcare will be provided from 5:30-8:30 pm. Volunteers will
      include a nurse and a couple of parents who have children with
      special needs. Volunteers will also attend a training session prior
      to the event. The church is hoping that this drop-in will allow
      parents a few hours to get in some holiday shopping or maybe even a
      quick date!



      Parents of children with autism are encouraged to sign up for this
      respite event. If interested, contact Laura Beth Cuyar at
      864.335.8526.
