Join us at Hudson’s Tap in Iowa City for Community Night!

Hudson’s will donate 15% of all sales (food, beverage, even retail should they sell any gift cards) to the Iowa City Autism Community.

100% of funds raised will be used towards the creation of “Calm Kits” to be distributed to area schools. Kits will include tools for self-soothing, relaxation, mindfulness and calming: a variety of fidgets, breathing tools, visual timers, noise cancelling headphones, and other items that target the tactile, vestibular, olfactory, and proprioceptive systems. Kits are being created in consultation with Autism Consultants.
