Adirondack Bank supports Kelberman Center, autism acceptance


UTICA — Officials with the Kelberman Center say Adirondack Bank is helping the  community in a big way. The company will be supporting Kelberman throughout April, which is Autism Acceptance Month.

Adirondack Bank will participate in Kelberman’s Autism Acceptance Community Campaign, where businesses partner with Kelberman in support of friends, family members and neighbors with autism. Adirondack Bank branches will be selling puzzle pieces to support Kelberman and all families receiving autism services throughout the community.

The Adirondack Bank building on Genesee Street in Utica will be lit up blue, the color of autism awareness, throughout the month of April.

“Adirondack Bank is honored to be able to help Kelberman by collecting donations on their behalf and supporting Autism Acceptance month throughout our entire branch system,” said Rocco F. Arcuri, Sr., president and CEO of Adirondack Bank. “The center does so much to provide assistance, support, and a variety of programs that have a significant and long-lasting impact on families in our communities. We are proud to work with Kelberman to help shine a light on autism.” 

The Kelberman Center CEO Maria Cappoletti commented, “We are overjoyed at the tremendous support Kelberman has received from Adirondack Bank in helping us in our efforts to spread autism acceptance community-wide. Adirondack’s notable presence within the community and partnership with Kelberman’s community campaign will greatly support the children and adults with autism in our community and their families.”  

Kelberman is the leading provider of autism services for children, adults, and families in the Mohawk Valley and Central New York. They provide comprehensive programming and services for people throughout all phases of life, from early childhood through adulthood, including home and community based, educational, clinical, residential, respite, and camp programs.

Its goal is to meet people and families where they are in life and to support them every step of the way on their journeys navigating autism.

The staff at Kelberman empowers the people they support with specialized, one-of-a-kind programs, resources, support, and wrap-around services that officials say create a fulfilling, life-enriching experience for people and families.
