 Foxborough Fire Department raising funds and awareness for Kennedy-Donovan Center


Foxborough, MA – May 29, 2019 – The Foxborough Fire Department will be sporting an extra badge this summer, as they raise funds for Kennedy-Donovan Center for Autism Awareness.

“The Foxborough Fire Department is grateful to have the opportunity to support local families receiving quality services through KDC,” said Deputy Chief Thomas Buckley with the Foxborough Fire Department. “Thank you to those who plan to purchase a patch for such a worthy cause.”

April was World Autism Awareness Month, and every year it serves as an opportunity to educate others, promote inclusion and hear success stories of those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The Foxborough Fire Department wanted to support Autism Awareness not just in the month of April, but year-round as families KDC supports require ongoing care.

KDC has an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program out of their Foxborough Offices, which provides support for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as their families, to pursue their personal potential and success in their homes and community. Individuals of all ages receive customized services using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, which is scientifically proven to be effective in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The Foxborough Fire Department will be selling these limited edition, Autism Awareness Patches as part of their public awareness campaign. The patches are on sale until the end of summer and all of the proceeds will be donated to KDC. Patches will be available for sale at the Foxborough Fire Station, at KDC’s Administrative Offices at 1 Commercial Street in Foxborough or by sending $10 per patch and a self-addressed stamped envelope to:
