Capezio Supports Autism Awareness

Capezio’s mission since day one has been to support their community through dance and theater. Although our products may help dancers around the world leap over new challenges, we are consistently looking for new ways to give back to the people that continue to support us. That is why we have teamed up with Autism Family Services of New Jersey, AFSNJ, an amazing charitable agency who is also working towards a better future for Autistic individuals and their families.

 
Autism Awareness 2019
 
New Jersey is home to some of our stores, employees and Capezio athletes. The Garden state also holds the highest ratio of autistic children, 1 out of 59, in the country. This means plenty of families are looking for support to help their special needs children have a great quality of life. However, it is hard for parents to find an occupational therapist that specializes in autistic children or recreational activities that have properly trained staff. That is why AFSNJ is such an important charitable agency, as they provide these families with behavioral services, after-school care, recreation programs and other helpful resources.

We combined our passion for dance with our love for community service to form one epic movement. For the whole month of April, we will be donating a percentage of our sales to AFSNJ. If you'd like to make a donation, you have the option at checkout on capezio.com or by visiting a Capezio retail store near you. Excited to learn more about the organization? Visit their website: autismfamilyservicesnj.org and make sure to wear blue on April 2nd for Autism Awareness Day!

I am so touched by your support of autistic individuals and their families. I am a mother of three children on the autism spectrum as well as a lifelong dancer and I wholeheartedly agree that more training and funding should be focused on making extracurricular and recreational programs more inclusive and accessible for individuals of all abilities. Please let me know how dancers and families from areas outside of New Jersey can become involved in this effort.
