The Texas Chapter recently gave $2,500 to both of their 2019 Chapter Charities to help support the mission of these local Texas organizations.
Arms Wide finds permanent, adoptive families for children in foster care who have endured abuse, neglect or abandonment with a special focus on older children, minority children, children belonging to sibling groups, and children with physical, mental or emotional disabilities or delays.
“I wanted to send an example of what your donation will help us do,” said Melissa Neely of Arms Wide Adoption Services. “In May, we were able to finalize the adoption of Aaron– just two months before his 18th birthday!”
The other charity that the Chapter supports is Traffick911, an organization that works to free youth from sex trafficking. The Traffick911 team has identified and served over 1,200 victims, and works in partnership with law enforcement to arrest and convict traffickers in multiple states. “We are so grateful for your support,” said Cheryl Brasuell, of the Traffick911 team.
Thank you to the PLUS Foundation and to the Chapter for supporting both of these great causes!
On Monday, July 15 and Monday, July 29, the Eastern Chapter came together to help out Monday Night Hospitality, the 2019 Eastern Chapter Charity. Volunteers served food to homeless, elderly, and low income residents at the “pop up” restaurant run by the organization, which provides hot fresh meals in a dignified style. 30,000 meals are served each year to the community on Monday nights.
Thank you to the Chapter and the volunteers for supporting such a great cause!
The PLUS Foundation recently donated to the Southeast Chapter Charity, Bert’s Big Adventure. This donation will help them provide a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World for chronically ill children and their families. Following their annual trip, Bert’s Big Adventure provides ongoing support to families and hosts a Reunion Adventure for all their alumni. They also have a Fairy Godparent Volunteer Program made possible with over 70 volunteers who visit the children in the hospital. Bert’s Big Adventure is passionate about helping children and their families and creating a sense of community.
Thank you to the PLUS Foundation for supporting such a great cause!
