South Carolina Autism Society Holds
Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive


Donations are behind previous years! 
Please donate and help provide Thanksgiving to a
South Carolina autism family in financial need!

In 2008, the South Carolina Autism Society and the LUCAS Network first partnered to provide a Thanksgiving dinner to families affected by autism who are going through financial difficulties. Thanks to the community’s donations, almost 900 families in need have been served since 2008. Your donations supported 130 families in 2016 alone! The need continues to grow.

For 2017, we will again be collecting financial donations and distributing grocery store gift cards to recipients.  Your donations allow this beneficial program to continue!
