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!

On behalf of the entire Anderson 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

We continue to need PPE for our program service areas. We continue to accept donations of all kinds in support of our work. If you have any questions, or need help making a donation, please email us: info@andersoncares.org

Please note: if you have anything shipped to Anderson's campus, use the following example as a template to insure it reaches its intended destination as quickly as possible:

ATTN: Team Member/Department
Anderson Center for Autism
4885 Route
P.O. Box 367
Staatsburg, NY 12580

Shipping to an Anderson adult house? Use the IRA mailing address and add "ATTN: Team Member/Individual, IRA NAME" to the top of the address line
