Guam - The Stations of KUAM presented a check of $3,470 to benefit the Autism Community Together organization. Proceeds from the 2nd Annual Halloween Calvo's Insurance Trick Or Treat event were given to help the autism community on Guam. ACT president Evelyn Claros says the donation will go to a worthy cause.

"I'm very grateful because it helps our families come together. Like today, we're having our monthly meeting. We usually have it on the first Saturday of the month and it helps us to provide childcare. Most of our families are challenged with childcare to come to meetings. So one of our ways to help families is to provide childcare so that we can come, we can share our challenges and share our hopes for our children in the future," she told KUAM News.

The money will also help the organization plan events in April where they will celebrate national Autism Awareness Month.
