Hauppauge, NY—February 6, 2017— Citation Clinical Labeling Systems today announced a donation of $1,150 to the Autism Speaks foundation, bringing Citation’s total donations, as an Autism Speaks partner, to more than $6,000 over the past three years.
Richard Bolnick, Citation’s President, said, “When I first mentioned, three years ago, that Citation would be taking an active role with Autism Speaks, I soon heard from our team members about sons, daughters, cousins, brothers and sisters on the Autism spectrum. I’m grateful that our company can support an effort that is so widely needed, and so greatly appreciated.”
As a community-minded, 23-year resident of Roslyn Heights, Bolnick has always taken an interest in organizations that give children with special needs an opportunity to participate in the community. He and his family have volunteered with Roslyn’s Baseball Challenger League and Basketball Shooting Stars League, both of which provide coaching, training and competitive opportunities to young athletes with special needs.
Of his family’s volunteerism and Citation’s support of Autism Speaks, Bolnick says, “We’re only as strong as our willingness to reach outside ourselves.” He adds that, “Teaching our children by example is the best way to ensure a caring community for the future.”
