Each week, we’re thanking some incredible people in 0ur community who help support Long Island’s Autism families dealing with the COVID-19 crisis. By raising money, supplying food for group homes, or further supporting NSASA, these COVID-19 Heroes are a bright light in these dark and uncertain times.

The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program of the Elmont School District raised $923 for The Nassau/Suffolk Autism Society of America. This incredible program has raised more than $52K over the last eight years.

Tom and Rosemarie DiEmidio have raised more than $850 for The Nassau/Suffolk Autism Society of America through Tom’s Birthday Donation and from other donations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tom is a consistent supporter of The NSASA year-round.

If you’re also interested in donating to support the NSASA, contact Suzanne Reek at (516) 404-2306 or SReek@NSASA.org.
