MAIER Family Partnership hosts Holiday “My Day to Play”

Teen boy smiling with Santas elvesSunday December 4th was an exciting day at the Maine Discovery Museum when the MAIER Family Partnership collaborated with the Museum to host a special Holiday “My Day to Play” for families impacted by ASD. Visitors were invited to journey to Santa’s village – including a visit with Santa and his cheerful elves. Children received a children’s book to take home, along with a MAIER backpack and other surprises.
