M&T Bank donates to support autism programs at Allied Services

Representatives of M&T Bank recently presented Allied Services with a major sponsorship in the amount of $2,500, supporting the 2022 Lexus Autism Golf Classic. The 29th Annual Autism Golf Classic presented by MotorWorld Lexusis scheduled for Monday, June 20 at Huntsville Golf Club in Lehman, Pa.

Proceeds from the tournament benefit pediatric patients with diagnoses on the autism spectrum who receive treatment and services at Allied Services. Treatments for autism aim to reduce symptoms and support the child’s quality of life. Interventions can take place at school, in the home, and with health care professionals. At Allied Services, autistic children can benefit from physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy interventions individualized for their needs. In the past year, Allied Services provided therapeutic services to more than 600 children including those with challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication, common to autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Allied Services is grateful for the continued support of its donors and sponsors, like the M&T Charitable Foundation, who make these services and programs possible.

The M&T Charitable Foundation strives to strengthen our communities by providing support for a diverse range of civic, cultural, health and human service organizations through grants, employee volunteerism and in-kind services. The M&T Charitable Foundation works in partnership with non-profit organizations that focus on the quality of life for M&T Bank’s customers, employees and neighbors. Founded in 1865, M&T Bank Corporation is a community-focused, regional financial services company serving customers in New York, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Virginia, West Virginia, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Massachusetts.
