Help us Create a Spectrum of Opportunity.
The Autism Society of Greater New Orleans is proud to launch the second annual “Spectrum of Opportunity” campaign for Giving Tuesday on December 1, 2020! This year, your support allows us to continue to address the autism community’s needs for support and relief services through the COVID-19 pandemic.
What is Spectrum of Opportunity?
Created as a part of the wider Giving Tuesday movement, the #SpectrumOfOpportunity campaign is about bringing communities together to listen, educate, advocate, and grow.
The Autism Society of Greater New Orleans has worked tirelessly to support and protect individuals with autism throughout the pandemic. We are making an impact, but we need your help to reach our $2,500 goal. Please consider supporting our efforts to create a #SpectrumOfOpportunity for individuals with autism and their families to live quality, supported lives during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
