The Macomb / St. Clair County Chapter of the Autism Society of America is a non-profit organization. The money we raise goes directly to some of our sponsored outings as well as autism awareness. Our chapter has done many great things in the past and will continue to do as much as we can in the future. We have sponsored movies, camps, and holiday parties at either a discounted rate or free. Our chapter has donated books to the local libraries, donated items to benefit children in the AI programs in schools with our "wish list" program, and passed out a lot of information to families in need of information regarding autism at many different local events.
