The South Carolina Autism Society (SCAS) will be observing its 17th Annual Strides for Autism Walk on April 15, 2023. The Strides for Autism is a special occasion during “Autism Awareness Month” to raise public acceptance and awareness, provide information about autism, and learn more about the most misunderstood and challenging disorder today. This event is also an excellent opportunity for families, caregivers and guardians to educate themselves and others about autism and issues within the autism community, and what resources and/or services are available in the local communities.
The Strides for Autism Walk is our signature fundraiser event where persons and families impacted by an Autism Spectrum Disorder also have an opportunity to participate in a fun walk, family filled activities, fellowship, exhale and relax, and enjoy local vendors. The funds raised from this event helps the Autism Society provide resources for persons and families affected by Autism to develop to their fullest potential.
As a non-profit charitable organization, this giving season is vital to our strategy, mission, and vision. From the origin of the company, Autism Society South Carolina (SCAS), continues to be the one of the state’s non-profit organizations dedicated to the total welfare of all persons on the Autism spectrum and their families. Our commitment has been to equip those affected by Autism with the resources needed to reach their maximum potential. Our non-funded initiatives provide quality of life assistance where it is needed the most. Those initiatives include financial assistance with rent and emergency shelter, utilities, food, therapy, school supplies, summer camp, and more.
None of this would be possible without the generous support of our community. We are asking that you commit to making us your annual charity of choice, sponsor us for Giving Tuesday, or make a one-time donation to help us continue to provide the level of support our families need and deserve. All donations are tax deductible, and we thank you in advance for your support.
SCAS offers opportunities for persons that would be interested in donating their time to help us work towards our mission to create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully. The volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to awareness, fundraising, conferences, mentoring, office, outreach and training.
