SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – As local students and faculty in town continue to scrape together their pennies in support of Autism New Jersey, Froyo World will match the donations received during April, which is Autism Awareness Month. All schools in Scotch Plains and Fanwood are participating in the fundraiser.

Through the first three weeks, St. Bart’s Academy is leading with Evergreen Elementary School on their heels. Schools placing in the top three will receive 10% off of their purchase of frozen yogurt during a designated week in May.

With one in 41 children suffering from autism spectrum disorder in the state, New Jersey has the highest rate in the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control. All of the funds raised will benefit Autism New Jersey, a non-profit agency committed to ensuring safe and fulfilling lives for individuals with ASD, their families, and the professionals who support them.

Last month, Froyo World’s fundraiser garnered more than $100 to benefit the Scotch Plains Public Library.
