(July 14, 2014) -- Bob's Discount Furniture has helped our community in a big way this year. Through customer contributions to collection jars in their stores from April through June they helped raise $25,000. Bob's later through a matching donation to their customer's contributions gave another $25,000 ending with a final total donation of $50,000 to help support our mission at Autism Speaks.
Cathy Poulin, public relations director for Bob's, says, "It's a pleasure to be able to support Autism Speaks with this year's second-quarter cafe donations. With autism now estimated to affect one in 68 U.S children, and thousands of autistic individuals entering adulthood each year, more needs to be done to address this increasingly prevalent problem."
