Alex Boorman, the daughter of Rick and Lisa, is 19 and has Down syndrome. She is one of the main reasons we started the store and the cafe. Special needs children, after years of school and having friends and teachers, goals and purpose, graduate to find there is no longer much to do in life. We wanted a future for this kiddo.
Red Door is partly for Alex. She works after school and on Saturdays and all summer. Right now she helps in the cafe, taking out food orders, doing dishes, and cleaning. She also helps in the store and is just an all-around troop when it comes to pitching in. Alex is a terrific artist and has sold over 30 paintings in the store. Half the proceeds go to the Down Syndrome Buddy Walk or Special Olympics. We are terribly proud of her!
