The Fence & Deck Connection's Holiday Drive will be supporting three non-profits this year. The first is
The Blue Ribbon Project. The Blue Ribbon Project was formed to assist children who are the victims of child abuse and neglect, as well as adult survivors of child abuse. One of the initiatives of this project is the "
Backpacks of Love" campaign. This campaign supports children entering the Foster Care system most times abruptly and unexpectedly. The primary focus of the campaign is to provide these children with a backpack that is filled with items of both necessity and comfort.
Fence & Deck Connection will also be supporting
Warrior Event's sole purpose is to enrich the lives of those wounded while serving our country as well as the lives of their family members. With the help and support of the community,
Warrior Events hosts monthly events for these warriors and their families to show appreciation for their immense sacrifices. Events such as sporting events, spa days, date nights, and much more have helped develop meaningful and long-lasting relationships with these Americans.
Warrior Events fundraises throughout the year to raise money to grant wishes for these warriors.
The third non-profit Fence & Deck Connection will be supporting is
Wy's Rides is dedicated to keeping kids happy and active while they're stuck in the hospital. The founders of this non-profit found out the hard way that caring for a sick child is difficult. Finding ways to become more efficient is crucial. So they started retrofitting red radio flyer wagons that allow kids who are tethered to medical equipment to get out of their hospital room and go for a ride, even when only one caretaker is available.
