THANK YOU ANDERSON TEAM MEMBERS!
A SPECIAL MESSAGE to our amazing, dedicated, team members from Anderson's social media community! Parents, supporters, and others have flooded our social media posts with comments of thanks and gratitude.
YOU ARE OUR SUPERHEROES!
WE ARE IN NEED!
On behalf of the entire Anderson Center for Autism community, we thank those of you who have made donations of supplies, wish list items, care packages, kind notes and unrestricted cash. Every act of kindness is noted and very much appreciated. Many of you have asked how you might be able to contribute, as well. Thank you for asking! Here are several suggestions for items we will benefit from, and some ideas for additional support:
- Make an unrestricted donation in any amount to Anderson Foundation for Autism, to allow the Foundation to support the growing needs of the Center, based on agency priority-this will help as we work on finalizing an emergency fund to help Anderson team members who are struggling at this challenging time
- Make a donation of infrared or ear thermometers and thermometers probes
- Make a donation of supplies such as surgical masks, gloves, gowns, cleansing wipes, soft soap and hand sanitizer
- Make a donation of cameras that can be used for Zoom and other video-conferencing needs
- Write letters or cards to your loved one that an Anderson team member can read aloud to them
- Write letters or cards to Anderson team members letting them know how much you appreciate their dedication and hard work
- Purchase something from Anderson’s wish list or on our Amazon wish list
If you have any questions, or need help making a donation, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
