LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A local group supporting the cause of Down syndrome unveiled two vehicles that will help special needs children.

The group, Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome, was able to purchase the vehicles thanks to donations from the WHAS Crusade for Children and Kosair Charities.

The 15-passenger van and a Ford F-150 will help transport kids to and from the doctor and also take children with Down syndrome to special events.

“DADS” of Kentuckiana says transportation can often be an issue for children with Down syndrome because some of their parents are older and unable to get their kids from one place to another.
