Fox & Weeks presents Matthews Children’s Foundation grant to Park Place Outreach

Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors was privileged to present a Matthews Children’s Foundation grant in the amount of $1000 to Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter, a facility in Savannah that provides services to at-risk youth and their families.

Park Place Outreach has served more than 6,500 teens in the Savannah community since 1984, providing emergency shelter, meals, and counseling to at-risk youth and their families. Park Place Outreach provides a safe, secure and loving temporary home for teens who are homeless, runaway, or victims of abuse. The Park Place Outreach facilities also serve as a preferable alternative to foster care or detention.

Fox & Weeks has now awarded more than $60,000 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 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 Coastal Empire or the South Carolina Lowcountry actively participating in the Matthews Children’s Foundation program supporting non-profit organizations dedicated to children.

Any organization in the area dedicated to providing for children’s needs is eligible to apply for a Matthews Children’s Foundation grant. To qualify for a Matthews 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.
