LUBBOCK, Texas -

As part of a give back campaign, 4ORE Golf is taking a big swing at helping those with autism.

The Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research received a $10,000 check from 4ORE Golf. 

Wes Dotson, the director of Buckhart, said the money will help students form social skills that will benefit them the rest of their lives.

"We want them to get out in the community both to learn how to work, but also how to play and to build relationships and friendships with folks that they'll spend the rest of their lives with," Dotson said.

The Burkhart Center is one of four community organizations 4ORE is donating to this year.
