FLORENCE CRITTENTON SERVICES HOLIDAY GIVING KICKED OFF

RODGERS Organizes Golf Tournament Raising $21,000

Holiday giving started early this year as approximately 100 golfers came out to Cedarwood Country Club on Monday, October 31st for Florence Crittenton Services’ Annual Golf Tournament. The event, held in collaboration with Rodgers Builders, Inc., raised over $21,000.

Construction industry leaders and community members made up the teams that played to support Florence Crittenton Services in their mission of promoting Health and Hope for Tomorrow’s Children by providing comprehensive health, educational, pregnancy prevention and social services for single pregnant and non-pregnant adolescents, women and their families.

Last year, FCS served 94 women in the Maternity Program, and 21 mothers and children in the Sarah’s House Program. For the past four years, 100% of Florence Crittenton clients have delivered drug-free babies; 93 clients participated in the Vocational Program; 20 clients enrolled in GED programs, 30 actively pursued employment, and 3 went on to a local college or university.

Headquartered in Charlotte, Rodgers is among the Top 10 National Healthcare General Contractors. Eric Reichard, Rodgers’ Chief Operations Officer and organizer of the golf tournament, lends his personal support as a Board Member of Florence Crittenton Services and was the agency’s 2010 winner of the Lucille P. Giles volunteerism award.

Marilyn Thompson, CEO of Florence Crittenton Services shared, “Involvement from Rodgers made this event a success. We are truly thankful for the support we have received from the business community. As in most households and organizations every penny counts and we use all our resources to help the mothers and babies in our care. We don’t think it gets more important than giving to children what we all deserve, health and hope.”

Join our team! FCS is hiring and internships are available for Fall 2011.

Florence Crittenton Services supporter and Momsie Blogger, Beth Barden, recently completed a significant project for the Sarah’s House Mother-Child Program.

She gathered friends and fellow supporters for her “Extreme Room Makeover,” and redecorated the living room and kitchen from top to bottom! To quote a Sarah’s House client: “This place feels so much more like a home now.”

Beth’s project will be featured in an upcoming issue of Southpark Magazine.
