In my role with Community Relations at Oakley, Inc. I have had the privilege of working with TACA for several years now. Initially, we worked with them in an employee engagement capacity. Our employees always loved volunteering with their organization and came back raving about the experience. TACA runs such impactful programs and provides much needed navigation services for families facing autism. They work with such compassion and expertise and have a truely essential impact on the community. The stories of those whose lives have been changed by TACA are countless. If I ever have a child with autism, I will be so glad to know that I can count on TACA. About a year and a half ago, Oakley launched a product collection with proceeds going to TACA. We did this because we felt we were in a unique position to raise awareness of this disease that affects 1 in 91 children. Our employees and athletes were very passionate and we wanted to step up and make a bigger impact. It's been great to see how our support has encouraged others to give and get involved!
