First Source Federal Credit Union will be going blue to raise awareness for Autism on Wednesday, April 2nd, World Autism Awareness Day. First Source is joining the autism awareness movement to, “Light It Up Blue.” In celebration, the branches will be decorated in blue and employees will be wearing blue to support the cause. As well, the First Source New Hartford Branch exterior will be lit up with blue lights.

Autism prevalence has increased 78% in 5 years and unfortunately continues to rise according to the Autism Speaks organization.

“At First Source Federal Credit Union we are committed to raising awareness of the devastating effects the diagnosis of autism has on an individual and their family,” said Mike Parsons, President and CEO of First Source. “With the rate of occurrence of autism now at 1 in 50 children, it is of paramount importance to not only find the causes but also support the programs and services that support local individuals and families dealing with autism.”
