Third Quarter 2008

3 October, 2008

At the Quarterly Venturi Awards Breakfast on October 3, 2008, the Venturi Brighter Employee Fund awarded three large grants. The recipients were The Way, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP), and Care Assurance System of the Aging and Homebound (CASA) of Madison County.

The Way serves our local community by providing a drug and alcohol recovery facility for men. Their goal is for these men to become productive husbands, fathers and employees by offering the support necessary to recover from substance abuse and addiction. The Way will use their gift to help offset operational costs of their program.

UCP of Huntsville & Tennessee Valley provides physical, occupational and speech therapy, as well as educational and social services to 600 children and adults within our local community. Not limited to cerebral palsy, UCP offers their services to families dealing with numerous other disabilities. The gift that they received will be used to help pay for their new building that they will use to provide a state-of-the-art training and technology center for those with special needs.

Our final gift winner, CASA, provides volunteer services to assist the unmet needs of the aging and homebound. Through numerous programs, CASA allows the aging and homebound individuals of Madison County to continue living in their homes. They will use their gift to purchase a tiller that will aid in the planting and growing of fresh produce that they deliver to numerous individuals in our community.
