On Friday December 4th 2015, Brain Injury Services was presented with a check for $5,055 from Home Works Painting president and founder Mike Katounas. During the month of December, the company initiated a campaign which would give back 5% of all interior residential signed contracts to the Brain Injury Services Pediatric Department.
“We were very surprised and overwhelmed by the generous offer from Home Works Painting to donate a portion of their proceeds to our Pediatric Program” says Brooke Annessa who is a pediatric case manager at Brain Injury Services. “It is so wonderful to form a new partnership with a local business in our community that can help us meet the needs of the families we serve.”
The Pediatric Program serves over 80 children and their family every year. Some of their clients have experienced traumatic, non-accidental injuries, while others have survived traumatic brain injury, strokes, and AVM bleeds. The program supports clients in every aspect of their lives – including educational, medical, recreation, family, mental health, and more.
Director of the Pediatric Program Jo Thompson said, “The donation from Home Works Painting will help us be better able to assist children with brain injuries in so many ways. The funds will enable us to help cover medical expenses, provide educational support services, as well as recreational and social activities for the children we serve. It will make a huge difference to the families in our program!”
This donation from Home Works Painting is deeply appreciated and comes during Brain Injury Services’ annual appeal campaign to raise money from local donors and organizations. In the end, the campaign actually raised $5,454.72! Thank you so much to Home Works Painting and their amazing contribution.
