January’s Colorado Charity Highlight: The SEAKR Foundation
As a premier Colorado and Denver moving company that likes to give back to the community we serve, we would like to take the time to highlight different charities in the area. This month, Exodus is recognizing the SEAKR Foundation. The SEAKR Foundation is special because it aims to help the families of soldiers who have fallen or been disabled in the line of duty in either Iraq of Afghanistan. The way SEAKR works is to provide a scholarship program that guides the family to a sense of happiness and peace after such tragedy. To date, 99% of all the funds the foundation has received have gone directly to the families it is working to assist. Recipients are chosen through research from local press, military family assistance organizations and Veteran Affairs. Once a family is chosen, the SEAKR Foundation reaches out and gives custom assistance based on the needs and circumstances the family faces. The SEAKR Foundation does not have a tailor made plan for each charitable recipient and that’s what makes them so special.
Recently, the SEAKR Foundation has teamed with Project Sanctuary to give families the opportunity to take a project sanctuary retreat in the heart of the Rocky Mountains where family reconnection and counseling are offered in a supportive environment.
We are fortunate to be the Colorado and Denver moving company we are today, and find this charity to be very near to our hearts. In 2010, Exodus decided that one of its company-wide goals was to hire veterans in order to help support the men and women who sacrificed so much for our Country. After setting this goal, Exodus was made aware of the SEAKR Foundation through a family member of one of our employees. As soon as we learned about all of the amazing things that the SEAKR Foundation has done for the families of fallen Colorado soldiers, we knew that we wanted to be involved. Exodus has been a title sponsor, along with SEAKR Engineering, of the Annual Fundraising Gala for the past two years and Joel Coen has performed MC duties for the event’s program. We look forward to continuing our support of the SEAKR Foundation. To learn more about the SEAKR Foundation or what you can do to give back, visit http://www.seakr.com/about/foundation.html
