The New York City Department of Sanitation will once again go blue in honor of Autism Speaks' Light It Up Blue campaign
during the month of April. The NYC Department of Sanitation began fundraising for Autism Speaks in 2013. For a third year the DSNY will adorn their entire fleet of nearly 2,500 vehicles with Light It Up Blue posters.
In additional to this awareness campaign, DSNY offices and facilities across NYC will host a month-long fundraising campaign to benefit Autism Speaks. Last year, DSNY raised over $71,000 for Autism Speaks, bringing their overall fundraising total to more than $200,000 to date.
