Gifts That Help Local People Affected by Autism

“During the events we have attended with the Autism Society of Greater Akron, we have met many wonderful families that are living and experiencing the same things we are.  We have met wonderful people volunteering their time to help children and families who are facing Autism in their life.  Words cannot say enough about what the Autism Society has done for our family.  Thank you to all who support in every way as it does make a difference. ~ Kathy, mom
