By Gabi Roach and Fallon Blacharski

Fallon Blacharski, a volunteer for the Life Skills program at North Shore High School, participated in a project with the purpose to raise money and bring awareness to Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks is an organization that searches for a cure and research on autism. In the project that Fallon helped with, people bought a blue puzzle piece and wrote their names on them to show that they support Autism Speaks. All of the puzzle pieces made a mural in North Shore High School. They raised over $650 and wore blue to support autism with the North Shore Life Skills program.
