The Autism Awareness Puzzle ribbon is a worldwide recognizable sign of a community’s support of autism. Neshaminy High Schools FCS Major teacher, Kelly Macauley, has teamed up with FCS Major student Mark McCune to create a helpful way to raise both money and awareness for Autism. The two, along with the Service Learning Club led by Macauley and Kevin Romano, have been constructing and selling these Autism ribbon pins.

Macauley is all about giving back and helping others so when McCune came to her with this idea she was thrilled to get on board and help make this project possible. “I’m very proud of Mark for taking the initative and working so hard to raise awareness for Autism,” Macauley said.

At this point in time they have managed to raise $50, all of which is being donated to the Autism Foundation. To show your support for Autism and contribute to the research for a cure stop by room C117 and purchase an Autism Ribbon Pin, available for $1. Ribbons will be on sale until the end of the school year.
