They are dedicated to increasing public awareness about autism. This includes the day-to-day issues faced by individuals with autism, their families, and their caring professionals.

Who gives to Autism Ontario?
The charity’s donors and volunteers are people with ASD, and their loved ones. Each of our vehicle donors has their own unique connection to Autism, and like Michael McCreary noted in his video,
If you’ve met one person with Autism, you’ve met one person with Autism. ~ Dr. Stephen Shore ~
In April 2017, one donor gifted a 1969 Pontiac Firebird through the Donate a Car Canada program. DACC worked on the donor’s behalf to arrange free pick-up for the collector car, and for it to be auctioned. Auction buyers were eager to bid. The result? A gift of $27,000.00 to the charity!
So, take some time to learn a little more about Autism and how you can assist. Visit the AO website to learn how to get directly involved in their work. You’ll also find information about how to donate there.
The DACC program can help, too! You may not have a ’69 Firebird on the driveway, but Donate a Car Canada will be delighted to work with you on a vehicle donation of almost any kind. If it has tires and all of its parts they can set you up with free tow and see a donation outcome that will contribute to research, support, and programming for folks with ASD!
