On the evening of December 6, 2014, founding principals of the factoring company will join many local supporters at the Spokane Convention Center for the 48th annual auction that supports the prevention of childhood abuse in the Spokane community.
“We love attending this event every year, “expresses Monica Wozow. “We support the Exchange Club by participating in the auctions. The items we purchase are then distributed to our employees at our Christmas party. It’s a great way to give back to our community and our employees in one grand gesture!”
The net proceeds from the crab feed and benefit auction goes on to provide funding for the programs and services of Spokane’s premier child abuse prevention agencies including the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Support Care and Networking (SCAN), and the Children’s Home Society of Washington. The 2013 event netted and distributed over $57,000 to the three agencies during Child Abuse Prevention Month.
The Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery has provided a safe haven for nearly 64,000 at risk children since 1987. SCAN was the first child abuse prevention agency in the State of Washington and the second agency of its kind in the United States’. The Children’s Home Society of Washington’s mission is to create strong families and to be an advocate for children.
The Exchange Club of Spokane Foundation’s mission is, “Improving our community and the quality of life of Children, youth and families by supporting child abuse prevention, educational opportunities, and service projects. The Exchange club is responsible for a variety of youth programs, the ACE Awards, the Young Citizenship Awards, and Youth of the Year Awards Scholarships. Their organization is based around community service and Americanism.
“We appreciate that such an opportunity exists for our company to give back to the community through the Exchange Club’s annual event,” states Wozow.
