Fox & Weeks presents York Children’s Foundation grant to Matthew Reardon Center
Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors was honored to present a York Children’s Foundation grant in the amount of $800 to the Matthew Reardon Center for Autism in April.
The Matthew Reardon Center for Autism in Savannah is dedicated to the care and education of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Through partnerships with existing medical, educational, and community services we provide special programs that enhance the quality of life for these children. Through the MRCA day school, Advance Academy and Advocacy and Outreach programs and community partnerships, the MRCA is able to provide programs and services designed to assist these children and their families and to enhance the quality of life for all.
The purpose of the York Children’s Foundation is to award grants to non-profit organizations dedicated to supporting children, and any organization in the Coastal Empire with the primary purpose of providing for children’s needs is eligible to apply for a York Children’s Foundation grant. Fox & Weeks is the only funeral home in the area actively participating in the York Children’s Foundation program and has now distributed thousands of dollars to local non-profits serving children’s needs since 2012.
Each time a family purchases a casket at Fox & Weeks, a portion of the cost is donated to the York Children’s Foundation in the name of the deceased and the accumulated funds are distributed quarterly to area non-profits chosen through an application process. The York 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.
To qualify for a York Children’s Foundation grant through Fox & Weeks, an application must be submitted and an organization’s activities must be primarily directed towards the welfare and benefit of children.
