When compassionate hands come together, they can achieve so much to help make a difference for those in need.
As mentioned in our earlier blog post, Helping Hands Reach The Community, the MSC Foundation recently wrapped up its second cycle of fund collection and disbursement for 2012. Thanks to the benevolent hearts of our agents and staff who contribute to the foundation, we were able to distribute $23,750 to support efforts which help improve the lives in the communities we serve.
With great pride, we shine the spotlight on the organizations that received grants from the MSC Foundation. Through their work, these special organizations make a true impact for those they serve by promoting education, offering shelter, and providing a path to self-sufficiency.
This week, we are pleased to highlight:
Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Sarasota-Manatee – MSC Foundation funds were designated for the Voluntary Interim Placement – Enhanced Recovery (VIP-ER) Program. VIP-ER helps those seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction, and teaches people to become more independent, gain self-esteem and realize what they are capable of achieving. The Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Sarasota-Manatee is one of six collaborative organizations that partner to assist this program.
