Throughout the year we are reminded that the autism community is among the most generous groups in the country; our families answer the call for help every time as we create fundraising events and awareness campaigns all year long. So we turn to our extended communities for help during November and December with our Annual Appeal. While everyone prepares for the season of giving, we remind the communities of Central Massachusetts that the support we provide allows families to enjoy the same kinds of activities that most take for granted, and to stay strong through their journeys with autism – throughout the year. All donations are, of course, tax deductible; most importantly, they remind us that generosity and compassion can be found everywhere.
Remember your 2,000 closest friends this holiday season
As you reflect on 2012 and all that it meant to you, chances are your family or business faced some of its biggest challenges ever. For families of children with autism, every day is a challenge regardless of the economy. Our children cannot 'cut back' on their disability. The Center continues to face an uncertain future, and our reliance upon the generosity of the community is greater than ever because we are dependent upon State funding for the critical programs we provide to families.
