In Memory of Mimi Argo-Laney, long time Spectrum member, friend and supporter, autism mom and advocate, memorial donations can be made to Spectrum as a tribute to her life.
Currently Spectrum serves well over 1,500 families in Gwinnett County and the surrounding Metro Atlanta area and has become a well-known resource in the autism community. We cannot do what we do without financial support and your donation will go a long way towards helping our community and all the families we serve.
We welcome your generous donations to help support our summer camp and education programs, raise autism awareness and contribute to the overall success of individuals with autism in our community. Community contributions and memorial donations are greatly appreciated.
Spectrum is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, and all donations are tax deductible.
