LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Fox 4 and the Scripps Howard Foundation, the charitable arm of our parent company, are doing our part to give back to those who help the community.

Wednesday, Fox 4 Morning News reporter Jessica Alpern and Fox 4's general manager Darryll Green presented a check for $1,000 to Impact.

The organization provides specialized early childhood developmental education for special needs and exceptional students.

They serve more than 200 kids in the Southwest Florida community.

The executive director says they are planning to use the donation to order some much-needed sensory materials. The items will go in sensory rooms that help students meet their goals.

She explains the impact programs like this have on the students they serve. “Most of the kids, 90% in fact, will accomplish their goals and go into regular classrooms as a result of the services they've received from Impact,” says executive director Kathy Beehler.
