Reach Child and Youth Development Society had visitors with glad tidings for their holiday appeal last week.
Fraserway RV presented Reach executive director Renie D’Aquila, with $5,000 towards the Reach Gift of Speech campaign on Dec. 16.
Many children have speech deficits that can limit their future and it is critical to provide support as early as possible. This recent donation brings the total amount raised for speech therapy to $28,960 at time of submission.
Each year, Fraserway RV decides on a charity to support during the holiday season and Reach was also the recipient in 2017. This year, Fraserway RV also had the regional flooding event to contend with and still mounted their annual giving.
“Fraserway RV’s generosity will provide an amazing 100 hours of speech therapy for Reach children,” said D’Aquila.
Because of the extraordinary outpouring of support from so many this year, Reach is able to expand the appeal goal to raise $37,500 and remove more children from the waitlist and provide the augmentative tools vital for speech therapy sessions. Funds raised this year to date will remove 58 children from the waitlist.
