TEAMSTERS LOCAL 25 AUTISM FUND ANNOUNCES $350,000 TO SUPPORT 11 AUTISM ORGANIZATIONS
Organization leaders received the great news during a virtual Zoom presentation hosted tonight by Teamsters Local 25 President Sean O’Brien.
The Teamsters Local 25 Autism Fund was able to raise critical funds despite the pandemic-forced postponement of its 13th annual Gala for Autism, thanks to the generosity of sponsors and the dedication of Local 25 members and staff volunteers.
“It was exactly one year ago when we made the difficult decision to postpone the 13th annual Teamsters Local 25 Autism Gala,” said O’Brien. “Despite having no event and other challenges posed by the pandemic, I am happy that we have been able to fund our grantees again this year. The Teamsters Local 25 Autism Gala will be back stronger than ever and our mission will never slow down.”
