A New Pair of Dress Shoes for Paul to shine bright at NAC’s 40th Gala

Posted Sep 20, 2022
Recently, Paul participated in a career exploration event in which he was able to tour an investment banking firm and sit down with the CEO for a meet and greet. This CEO was so blown away by this interaction that he insisted that he and her peers attend the NAC Gala. Although that was already something that was being considered, this event solidified their participation. Naturally he was thrilled by this opportunity, but soon after the excitement wore off panic began to set in. He worried that he would not feel comfortable at the Gala because he does not have anything that is nice enough for such a grand event and he cannot afford to purchase dress shoes. His team hopes is to gift him formal clothes to attend the NAC Gala so he can share his knowledge with all of the attendees!.

Paul is 22 years old and lives in New York, NY

Paul is a smart, young man with Autism who graduated high school last year. He lost his mother at a young age and entered foster care. He currently resides in a group home and works in a hotel. Paul is very outgoing and will make anyone feel welcome in his presence. He is also very knowledgeable about anything and everything and loves talking about current events.
