Holyoke, Massachusetts (PRWEB) April 06, 2012
As the prevalence of autism diagnoses has increased substantially in recent years, it has become more important than ever for parents to be aware of the signs of autism so that they can ensure their children have everything that they need to learn and grow. In order to help spread awareness for autism, the city of Holyoke and Massachusetts insurance companies like Ross Insurance Agency have organized a city-wide campaign. Ross Insurance, as well as the Holyoke City Hall, fire houses, police stations and local businesses, will be participating in the Light It Up Blue autism awareness campaign, for which all these locations will be illuminated with blue lights during the month of April.
In addition to spreading awareness throughout the local community, the staff members at Ross Insurance Agency made $ 10 donations, which were matched by the agency and donated to the Metcalf Autism Program where funds will be used to purchase sensory equipment for children. City Hall employees also made $ 5 donations to dress in all blue on Monday, April 2. Ross Insurance Agencys President Maureen Ross OConnell has teamed up with her fellow Holyoke Rotary Club members to sell Autism Speaks puzzle-piece pins that will help raise up to $ 500 for the program.
As small, local businesses, Massachusetts insurance companies like Ross Insurance Agency know that children are the future of their community. The insurance experts encourage their family, friends and clients to join in the effort to raise awareness for autism and learn the signs of autism spectrum disorders. Individuals who would like to make a donation can send a check payable to the Metcalf Autism Program to Holyoke City Hall or call Ross Insurance Agency at (888) 707-9530 to purchase a puzzle-piece pin.
