West Warwick, R.I., December 1, 2017 – The Centreville Bank Charitable Foundation has presented a $25,000 grant to The Autism Project, a state-wide nonprofit whose mission is to empower individuals with Autism, Asperger Syndrome and related disorders, and the families who support them.
“Year-round, The Autism Project provides a wide array of resources and services for children, teens and adults who are on the autism spectrum, and the families who support them,” said Jonathan Roderick, vice president, retail administration for Centreville Bank, and president of The Autism Project’s board of directors. “This gift from the Centreville Bank Charitable Foundation provides critical funding for the organization’s programming, including Camp WANNAGOAGAIN, the popular summer camp for youth and teens.”
“This grant enables us to ensure that no child misses camp due to financial challenges,” said Joanne Quinn, executive director of The Autism Project. “Centreville Bank’s ongoing support of our programming helps children, teens, young adults, families, educators, students and volunteers from across our state.”
The Autism Project was founded in 1997, under the moniker The Autism Society of Rhode Island. Since that time, the organization has expanded to offer multiple levels of parent and professional training, workshops and social skills groups for all abilities, training, consultation and mentoring for educators in public schools, a summer camp, caregiver support, a resource center, advocacy, and public awareness.
