Fox & Weeks presents Matthews Children’s Foundation grant to Matthew Reardon Center for Autism
Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors presented a Matthews Children’s Foundation grant in the amount of $1000 to The Matthew Reardon Center for Autism.
Fox & Weeks has now awarded more than $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.
The Matthew Reardon Center for Autism is the only organization in southeast Georgia that operates an accredited, year-round education program for students with autism and one of only a handful of such programs in Georgia. Over the past 15 years, the facility has directly served thousands of individuals, families, educators and professionals through programs for advocacy, intern placement, intakes, outreach, therapy, education and advanced training.
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.
