Funds raised at Louisville Penn Station locations will be donated to Down Syndrome of Louisville
For the third year in a row, Penn Station is hosting its Round-Up for Down Syndrome campaign from March 1-21, which will benefit Down Syndrome organizations across the country, including Down Syndrome of Louisville. During the campaign, participants can grab a bite to eat and make a difference in the lives of people with Down syndrome by rounding up their purchase to the nearest dollar. Penn Station locations in more than a dozen states are participating in this campaign, supporting more than 30 local Down syndrome organizations.
“We are so excited to be partnering with Penn Station for the Round-Up for Down Syndrome again this year,” said Julie Torzewski, Executive Director of Down Syndrome of Louisville (DSL). “Penn Station has been such an amazing partner for us. The dollars raised during March make a difference to the individuals with Down Syndrome in our community all year long.”
