MTS Logistics Partners with Spectrum Works to Raise Funds and Awareness for Autism

Image The team at MTS Logistics are once again taking Corporate Social Responsibility to the next level. They have just partnered with Spectrum Works, an organization that helps to integrate individuals with autism into the workforce, in an effort to raise money and awareness for their cause. In an effort to not just raise money but leave a legacy, MTS Logistics created a new type of fundraising tool. A comprehensive resource entitled The Book On Autism. It is a 180 page book that serves as the ultimate guide to Autism research and information. All proceeds from the $20 book will be donated to aid in the valuable work that Spectrum Works is doing in order to usher members of our society with autism into the workforce.
Today over 2 million individuals in the U.S. are affected by autism and nearly 80% of them are unemployed. Spectrum Works, a nonprofit organization that provides career training and employment for individuals with autism, is looking to change this staggering fact.

While the book is currently available on ( it will officially be launched at the annual bike ride for autism that MTS Logistics is holding on June 11, 2016 in New York City.

This year the routing for the ride will be same as last year, they will have 2 Tiers. MTS Logistics is supplying bike jerseys and numbered water bottles that will be used to facilitate the raffle. In past years their fundraiser focused on planting trees and made great efforts on behalf of the environment. Anyone that would like to participate and help them give back to the community is encouraged to reach out via the MTS Logistics blog

MTS Logistics will also donate $30 per person for the Tier 1 participant and $20 per person for Tier 2 participants. They will also give away the book that is being printed about Autism during the brunch. The Book is being used as a give away at the event instead of an additional fundraising tool. As always they will do a raffle and one lucky winner will receive a brand new bike and another will win premium biking apparel.
