F&H Cares Announces 2021 Recipient: Autism Speaks

Fabrics and Home is happy to announce that this year’s F & H Cares recipient is Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. They do important work through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.

Lorie Thur Katz, the daughter of F&H’s founder, has worked with children with disabilities for many years, and hopes to widen her impact with annual donations to the organizations that support the 13 disabilities listed in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), that impact school-aged children and their families.

Fabrics and Home created F & H Cares in 2019 to support children with disabilities by donating 25 cents per yard for each yard of fabric sold from the products purchased on its website. Each year, Fabrics and Home will randomly choose one of 13 disabilities from this list.

This year we are honored to support Autism Speaks for all their hard work and dedication to the awareness of this very important cause. They have been a vital and very powerful voice since 2005. F and H’s donation will be given to Autism Speaks during the month of December 2021.
