We are pleased to announce our Board Chair, Mr.Hugh Erickson received the Grant Thornton CEO Community Service Award this year!
This award recognizes significant contributions to the community. Hugh Erickson is a Chartered Accountant and currently a senior manager with Grant Thornton LLP. In winning this award, the recipients also received $2,500 to give to a charity of their choice. Hugh graciously chose Pacekids Programs.
Pacekids is so grateful to be able to work with incredible organizations like the Grant Thornton Foundation. As a charitable organization, Pacekids relies heavily on the generosity of caring individuals, corporate partners and foundations to ensure we can continue to provide an unprecedented level of service to the children and families who need them most. The $2,500 donated by the Grant Thornton Foundation helped to support our children in the ECS program and has helped provide access to invaluable offerings like door-to-door transportation, a comprehensive therapy team, and even one-on-one support in the classroom to those who may require it.
“If it weren’t for that kind of support or assistance, we could not do what we do today” says Alex Reed, Executive Director of Pacekids.
Pacekids works to wrap a continuum of support around every child we serve, because, as they say, it takes a village. Our generous partners are very much a part of this village and we are proud to consider Grant Thornton one of our members.
