Annual Household Membership

Children are special gifts. Many of us search for that perfect toy car, doll, video game, or gift card to give a child for birthdays and holidays. At the Autism Society Northwestern Pennsylvania, we have a great gift idea for the growing number of families and professionals helping those with Autism…an annual membership.

This membership includes the sensory and social family outings for free or at reduced cost to many local sites and events in Erie.  We also offer member-only and member appreciation events.

The cost for the membership is only $25 per household.

In addition to the events and great support from other families and children, the benefits of community resources are abundant.  Don't forget the grandparents!  Memberships are a perfect way to include grandparents all year long.  Contact the office at (814) 455-3540 if you would like to gift a membership for a family.

A huge THANK YOU goes to our volunteers!

As the charity partner for the Lantern Fest, we were asked to recruit approximately 80 volunteers.  We ended up with 125 volunteers! Our volunteers built and packed 5,000 S'mores kits, packed marshmallows, worked at registration, bounce houses, merchandise, and arts & crafts.  Thank you to our amazing volunteers for helping us shine.

All of our volunteers' hard work earned Autism Society NWPA a donation from Lantern Fest in the amount of $7,500!
