Thank you to our friends over at The Burger Express in Carteret, NJ. To show their support for New Jersey’s autism community, they donated $10,000 last month to Autism New Jersey! Their generous contribution will help connect families to the resources and support they need.

Eric Adams, owner of this favorite local burger joint, has been a longtime supporter, holding a variety of promotions over the years in conjunction with Autism Awareness Month in April.

“I have known (former Autism New Jersey Board Member) Gino Valiant and family for about 30 years. A wonderful family that has shown commitment and dedication toward Autism New Jersey, which encouraged me to become involved,” Adams said. “Burger Express has always been a supporter of all the special needs in the community for 43 years. Working with groups such as Carteret Specials and Gateway School has helped bring awareness to our community.”
