During the month of April – Autism Awareness Month – car dealerships across the country will pledge to donate $20 per test drive to “Test Drives for Autism.” Every dollar donated goes directly to Turning Pointe Autism Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting children, individuals, and families as they navigate the lifelong impact of Autism.
In 2004, 1 in every 10,000 children was diagnosed with Autism. Today, that number is a staggering 1 in 68. As instances of Autism continue to grow, so too does the need for resources, services, and real-time solutions to the challenges faced by those on the spectrum, and their loved ones. Turning Pointe Autism Foundation is committed to providing educational programming, family support services, residential, and recreational opportunities to this growing special needs population.
Watch here in the coming weeks for a listing of all participating dealerships and please help those who need it most by scheduling your test drive!
