Petro Home Services hits the road to raise funds for autism awareness

Petro Partners with Autism Speaks
Taking care of families in our local community is just as important to us as it is to you. That’s why we're proud to partner with the Autism Speaks organization and create a program to help raise funds and generate awareness for this challenging medical condition that touches many in our community.

We've designed a special Autism Speaks fuel delivery truck and will donate a percentage of the profit of every gallon of heating oil that the truck delivers throughout the year. Three other fuel trucks at other CT locations will also participate in the program. Everyone on the Petro Home Services team is proud and excited to be working with such a wonderful organization. Please lookout for our Autism Truck at local community events, as well as on the road in your neighborhood throughout the year, and honk or wave to show your support for this worthy cause.

As your local, total home services provider, Petro Home Services will continue being active participants in local and national efforts to raise funds for many great charities and causes.

Autism Speaks is the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization. It is dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Suzanne and Bob Wright, the grandparents of a child with autism. Mr. Wright is the former vice chairman of General Electric and chief executive officer of NBC and NBC Universal. Since its inception, Autism Speaks has committed nearly $200 million to research and developing innovative resources for families. Each year Walk Now for Autism Speaks events are held in more than 100 cities across North America.
