We wanted to thank these members of our community for raising funds for us the old-fashioned way – reaching out to their local community.

The Palermo Family Garage Sale

Nansy and her family put together a garage sale of new and used items earlier this month and raised $402.30 for our chapter!  Her daughter is a participant in AOK Camp.  Thank you!

Kathy Pelaia’s Retirement Gift

Kathy recently retired from her work as a principal with the Toronto District School Board.  Instead of a parting gift, she asked her friends and colleagues to make donations to AO York.  Her son is part of our Autism Ontario Adult (AOA) program.  Kathy’s retirement raised $952.16 – thank you to all who contributed!

Leo Adragna’s Casual Day at Work

Leo Adragna organized his workplace to pay for a casual day at the office and raised $820.00!  People will always come up with cash to avoid dressing up for work!  Leo and Sara’s son is a participant in our Social Skills Summer Institute.  Thanks!
