Stray Cat Alliance

We were happy to fulfill a Grant request for Stray Cat Alliance so they can continue their life saving efforts. Founded in 2000, Stray Cat Alliance educates and empowers communities to advocate for every cat’s right to be safe, healthy, and valued. Every day, Stray Cat Alliance works to save the lives of helpless kittens and cats by providing spay/neuter, trap-neuter-return (TNR), adoptions, wellness care, medical care, adoption and community shelter support.

Stray Cat Alliance has a facility that provides temporary shelter to kittens and cats awaiting foster and forever homes. At their facility, they also have a clinic that serves the hundreds of cats they have in custody, whether at their shelter or in foster care. Right now, Stray Cat Alliance has over 900 cats in custody, with about 115 on site. Stray Cat Alliance’s goal this year is to find forever homes for 1,800 cats and kittens and serve over 3,000 through their foster/adopt and trap-neuter-return (TNR) programs.

Believe In A Cure

We were happy to support Believe In A Cure with Grant funding. The mission of the organization is to develop a treatment for a rare brain disease called FOXG1 syndrome which has links to Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, and brain tumors and which prevents impacted kids from walking, talking, or doing anything independently while suffering from seizures, a sleep disorder, feeding difficulties, and more (many patients have died from the complexity of these issues). The second part of the mission is to provide support to impacted families.

The Michael Magro Foundation

We are happy to provide Grant funding to The Michael Magro Foundation. Their support includes helping families of children battling cancer and other catastrophic illnesses so that the families can focus on their child rather than worrying about where the funds will come from to pay the mortgage/rent, utilities, grocery bill – even co-pays. Also, the Foundation offers programs to aid in transitioning children who have been out of school for significant periods due to illness back into their school program.

To date, the Foundation has raised more than 3.5 million dollars to support children battling cancer and other catastrophic illnesses and their families.

St. Catherine of Siena Hospital

We were happy to return to St. Catherine of Siena Hospital to fulfill a Grant request. Grant funds will purchase (1) Stryker Power-Pro transport stretcher and (2) GE Carescape cardiac monitors for use in the newly expanded chest pain evaluation bay. Clinicians need tools to help them quickly identify changes in patient status to determine the appropriate clinical care. The cardiac monitor assists with clinical decision support by providing a patient’s vital signs including heart rate, oxygen level, and blood pressure allowing the attending physician to determine the appropriate level of care quickly and efficiently. The stretchers are designed to reduce the physical strain on clinicians, drive efficiency and enhance patient comfort..
