Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.

The fundraising drive is among many activities during Autism Awareness Month, which promotes understanding of the disorder that affects 1 in 68 children. Donations to Autism Speaks fund cutting-edge research, advocacy initiatives and free resources. They include Autism Speaks Tool Kits, which were downloaded more than 75,000 times in 2015, and the Autism Response Team, which last year answered more than 51,000 inquiries from families.
The partnership between Autism Speaks and Dollar General is now in its seventh consecutive year, and in 2015 alone, Dollar General raised $1.8 million for Autism Speaks.
“Part of our mission is Serving Others, our commitment to investing in organizations that extend help and hope to our customers and the communities we serve,” said Denine Torr, senior director of community initiatives. “Through our customers’ generosity, we look forward to having a positive impact on people affected by autism.”
