Chappaqua and New Castle Recognize Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month and every year on April 2, Autism Speaks celebrates its  international “Light It Up Blue” campaign to raise awareness of autism. Thousands of iconic landmarks, skyscrapers, schools, businesses and homes across the globe unite by shining bright blue lights in honor of the millions of individuals and families affected by autism. New Castle Town Supervisor Robert Greenstein noted this as a recent New Castle Town Board meeting and encouraged individuals everywhere are encouraged to wear blue on that day.

Further recognition goes to Chappaqua Hardware for selling discounted blue light bulbs and making a donation of $1 to Autism Speaks for every blue light bulb sold.

Autism impacts families around the globe.  Awareness is the first step on the path to acceptance.  Support autism awareness and the charities that support the families that need help.Autism-Speaks-JD
