Fox & Weeks presents Matthews Children’s Foundation grant to Park Place Outreach
Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors presented a Matthews Children’s Foundation grant in the amount of $1000 to Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter.
Fox & Weeks has now awarded nearly $50,000 in Matthews Children’s Foundation grants since launching the program in 2012. Each time a family purchases a casket at Fox & Weeks, a portion of the cost is donated to the Matthews Children’s Foundation in the name of the deceased and the accumulated funds are distributed quarterly through an application process to area non-profits benefitting children and children’s causes.
Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter provides support for troubled children and teens from Savannah and the surrounding area. The shelter is open 24 hours a day to youth in crisis, adolescents who are homeless, young people who have been abused, runaway youth or those who may be contemplating how to run away.
The Matthews Children’s Foundation is affiliated with the Mathews International Corporation casket division and has delivered millions of dollars in grants throughout the country since its introduction in the early 1990s. Fox & Weeks is the only funeral home in the area actively participating in the Matthews Children’s Foundation program supporting non-profit organizations dedicated to children.
