NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) – The organization Autism Tennessee is announcing that the Tennessee Autism Awareness License Plate project has been completed.
Over 1,000 license plates have been pre-sold and will now be submitted to the state so the plates can be made and offered to the public.
The Autism Awareness license plate was the project of four Tennessee moms. All four have children on the autism spectrum and wanted to spread autism awareness in a big way, while also raising money for the autism organizations that have touched their lives.
The funds from the license plate sales will support the missions of Autism Tennessee (formerly the Autism Society of Middle Tennessee), the Autism Society of East Tennessee and the Autism Society of the
Midsouth, serving West Tennessee. The organizations provide resources and supports to families living with autism.
