Thank you Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM)
Archer Daniels Midland Company recently donated $2,000 to Soaring Eagle Academy. The donation supported the purchase of a 14-person multi-function school activity bus, offering high school transition students diagnosed with Autism the opportunity to participate in vocational and life skills training and recreation/leisure activities in the community.
“We are honored and thrilled by the continued generosity and support we receive from ADM,” said Deanna Tyrpak, Executive Director and co-founder of Soaring Eagle Academy. “ADM has played an important role in helping us continue our mission of improving the lives of children and young adults with Autism and their families.”
Soaring Eagle Academy is a non-profit therapeutic day school, approved by the Illinois State Board of Education. We offer an alternative educational placement option for students with Autism and related disorders whose complex needs cannot be met in a traditional setting. We recently moved to Lombard and renovated a 25,000 square foot building to accommodate the complex learning needs of our students and our school’s unique teaching practices.
The donation was given through ADM Cares. ADM Cares is a social investment program that directs funds to initiatives and organizations that drive meaningful social, economic and environmental progress worldwide. The program comprises three distinct focus areas: supporting the responsible development of agriculture, improving the quality of life in ADM communities and fostering employee giving and volunteer activities.
