Foundation Makes Two Donations to ALS Association

Earlier this month, our foundation made two donations to the local ALS Association chapter. A donation of $2,000.00 in honor of Michelle’s memory was made to the chapter in conjunction with their annual walk to defeat ALS.  We asked that the donation be targeted to areas of research directed at finding meaningful treatments and/or cures for ALS.  Our foundation made an additional donation of $1,000.00 to the local ALS chapter to be put towards providing support to ALS caregivers in their care of loved ones affected by ALS.
