The Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce has seen the needs of local non-profit organization, Our Nicholas Foundation (ONF) — and risen to the occasion in spreading the word about aiding local families affected by autism.

According to Mark Anselmo, founder of ONF, “The Temecula Chamber emailed all of their members to help us try to get our vote count up to qualify for a $10,000 grant for our foundation.” Anselmo said.

This 1 in 23 opportunity, presented by Safeco Insurance, can make all the difference for area families, according to Mark Anselmo, founder of ONF.

“When we first held that precious baby in our arms, we had no idea what the future would hold. Nicholas was our 2nd child. Fast forward two years and we noticed, that Nick wasn’t reaching his age milestones…walking and talking were his biggest delays. Out of nowhere we heard the word “Autism” for the first time uttered by our doctor…Our world had literally changed overnight. Since then Nicholas has made our lives so much better. He has brought meaning into our world and taught us what is truly important…his impact on our family and friends cannot be measured in words. He still wakes up every day and says with his limited language that “it’s a beautiful day…”

Our Nicholas Foundation has been presented with an amazing opportunity and the chance to win $10,000.  Out of the 23 organizations ONF just needs to be in the top 4 to qualify.
