      The Easter Seals of Southern Georgia and TIME, Inc. partnered together to raise money for a handicap-accessible van for the children at Megan's House, and Wednesday morning that dream came true.

      Megan's House is a respite home for children up to age 17 who have developmental disabilities, autism, or are medically fragile. The children that spend time there aren't able to get out into the community much because it's so hard to transport them.

      Carol Hollomon, the president of TIME, Inc. says this van will enable children to go to the mall, movies, church, etc. and just help them get out and experience more things in life. Hollomon says this van costs about $50,000 but with the fundraisers they've held and the grants they've received they were able to purchase it.
