Best Buddies hosts annual matching party
Best Buddies had its annual matching party on Thursday, Oct. 19 at the Multi-Purpose Room during lunch.
Best Buddies is a campus organization that develops friendships between people with Intellectual Developmental Disabilities (IDD) to people who don’t. The matching party was a way for members to meet their partner for the year and get to know each other better.
“It feels very heartwarming because you’re part of something so inclusive and you get to help people that don’t really have someone to lean [on]. People with IDD are not really different from us,” treasurer junior Phoebe Cao said. “It’s just the difference of one chromosome, like they have eyes, they all have the same fingers and hands, so it’s kind of disheartening to see them being treated differently.”
