LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Donating money to the WHAS Crusade for Children is the beginning of what some might call a miracle. In the case of one Bardstown Elementary School student, Crusade funding has given a child who barely speaks a reason to sing.
The Crusade has helped Bardstown and Nelson County schools over the years. In the last ten years Bardstown and Nelson County Schools have received more than $600,000 in Crusade funding.
The latest addition provided by the Crusade is the Snozelen room. It is a controlled environment designed to give children a safe, soothing atmosphere to learn or simply to calm down.
For Aimie and Jude it's truly a special place. WHAS11's Melissa Swan has the full story, click on the video player above for the full story.
The generosity has provided equipment, staffing and learning opportunities for thousands of children with special needs. For the 60th year the WHAS Crusade for Children has set a goal of raising six million dollars. To do that the staff is suggesting $60 dollars for the 60th.
The 60th Annual WHAS Crusade for Children is on Saturday June 1 and Sunday June 2.
