Stellar Foundation Brightens Holidays for Critically Ill Children
The Stellar Foundation, the corporate-giving arm of Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services worldwide, gave holiday gifts to over 80 critically ill children and their families today.
The gifts were distributed at Community PedsCare, a Community Hospice of Northeast Florida program, which provides care and support to children facing life-threatening conditions and their families.
This is the Stellar Foundation’s seventh year partnering with Community PedsCare for its Holiday Sponsor-A-Child program. Each year, Stellar employees volunteer to anonymously sponsor a Community PedsCare patient or family member, purchasing items from their wish lists, which include clothing, video games, movies and toys.
“We’re proud of our employees, who continue giving each year to this rewarding program,” said Allison Korman-Shelton, Stellar’s Vice President of corporate marketing and public relations. “Our hope is that the gifts help the children and their families focus on family and celebrating, instead of doctors and hospital beds.”
The Stellar Foundation is a longstanding Community PedsCare partner, and is a proud sponsor of the organization’s annual “Halloween Doors and More” celebration, among other events.
