Landscape services company increased sponsorship to additional markets in 2018.

Orlando, Florida-based Massey Services, the nation’s fifth largest pest prevention and landscape services company, has announced that in 2018 it once again increased its sponsorship of Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks is a nonprofit organization based in New York City that is dedicated to advancing research into causes and better treatments for autism spectrum disorders and related conditions.

Massey Services says it has been a proud sponsor of Autism Speaks in Orlando for the past 11 years. Two years ago, it extended its sponsorship to participate in fundraising efforts in Tampa, Florida. In 2018, the company increased its sponsorship again to expand to additional markets, including Atlanta; Charlotte, North Carolina; Dallas; and Austin, Texas.

“Autism Speaks is an organization that is extremely important to our company and we’ve been proud supporters for many years,” says Tony Massey, president of Massey Services.“We believe in giving back to our communities and this is another great example of our commitment. We are so thankful for all of our team members who volunteered, participated in the 2018 walks and made financial donations.”

In addition to the Autism Speaks walks sponsorship, Massey Services also provided a charitable contribution to Jacksonville School for Autism in Jacksonville, Florida in 2018.

In 2014, the Harvey and Carol Massey Foundation donated a $500,000 gift to Nemours Children’s Hospital to develop an early autism intervention program that brings Nemours experts from many disciplines together to help children and families.
