*The 100-mile garage sale is happening now. The DAC is not participating in the event this year (hopefully next year), but if you have any leftover empty baskets, we would greatly love the donation of them for upcoming fundraising events! So, if you find yourself with extra woven, plastic, metal, or other baskets that you need to get rid of, please think of us. We would be happy to take them off your hands. Please contact us or stop on by to drop them off anytime of the year Mon-Fri 7am-4pm.

Thank You SMUMN Fastpitch!

April 23-24 the SMUMN Fastpitch Softball Team hosted an event in Winona. At this event they had a booth for Autism Awareness and were so kind to offer the Winona DAC the free will donations given at the game. All of us at the DAC are so thankful for their kindness to pay it forward and for choosing our facility to be the recipients of their generosity. A special shout out to Marissa N at SMU for designing posters, stickers, and putting this together for us! Go Cardinals and congrats on the win on the 23rd!
