Members of Elmont School District raised more than $9,000 for Autism Society of America – Nassau Suffolk Chapter. The fundraiser was run by the ABA/Autism program under the leadership of Rhonda Lebit and the staff, students and teachers of Alden Terrace, Clara Carlsen, Dutch Broadway, Stewart Manor and Covert Avenue Schools.
“The Elmont school district has raised a total of $32,760 dollars for NSASA over the past seven years. We are truly grateful for the efforts and hard work of the teachers and staff of the ABA/Autism program in helping NSASA in our efforts to help more than 2000 families on Long Island. These funds will be kept locally and help families affected by autism in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties. These funds were raised by selling t-shirts, bakes sales, raffle prizes and other personal donations. It truly was a team effort of Clara Carlson, Alden Terrace, Dutch Broadway, Stewart Manor, Covert Manor and Gotham Avenue. This year’s donation of $9040 is a new record for the District.”
