Labelle, FL. –AshBritt Environmental understands the limited resources some foster parents encounter after bringing a new child into their home, which is why the environmental emergency management company was compelled to donate a bicycle and a cash donation to support Foster Children Wishes, Inc. (FCW) during the organization’s “Birthday Wishes” themed month.
Founded in 2009, Foster Children Wishes, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to supplying foster families with toys, educational tools and everyday necessities. Laurie Carley, president of Foster Children Wishes, Inc., was introduced to Matt Gierden, regional manager of AshBritt Environmental, at the 2010 Florida Emergency Preparedness Association Conference. After learning of the financial strains many foster parents face and FCW’s goal to help, AshBritt knew they had to do something to support the foster families of the LaBelle community.
“We hope our donation will bring a big smile to a child’s face after the birthday candles are blown out,” said Gierden. “Because of Foster Children Wishes, Inc., these fortunate children will have the opportunity to laugh and play with toys and games beside parents who cherish their child’s laughter.”
