Oneida County workers support autism awareness month

Posted

Oneida County employees raised $1,710 through a dress-down day and bake sale booth on Friday, May 3.

The employees donated the money to the Kelberman Center’s Walk for Autism Mohawk Valley event at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Utica the following day, the county announced.

National Autism Awareness Month is recognized in April as an opportunity to raise awareness about autism, promote inclusion and self-determination for all and assure that each person with autism spectrum disorder is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life.

The Oneida County Office Building in Utica was lit up in multiple colors on national Autism Awareness Day, which was celebrated April 2 and again the week leading into the May 4 Walk For Autism.
