ST. LOUIS — Foam Supplies Inc. (FSI) granted $40,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Missouri and Kansas for local children battling critical illnesses. As a Wish Benefactor Partner, FSI’s gift will help grant four wishes to children who need them most. Additionally, there will be opportunities throughout the year for FSI employees to volunteer their time and talent at Make-A-Wish sponsored events.
“FSI has a longstanding commitment to making a difference and supporting the community,” said Todd Keske, CEO at FSI. “It gives me great pride that we can do our part to help make an impact on the lives of deserving children facing incredibly difficult circumstances.”
The company also has an internal volunteer initiative. This initiative supports employees who are passionate about a cause or charity. Most recently, FSI employees in the company’s St. Louis and Lewisville, Texas, locations rallied together to spearhead a month-long drive to collect personal care items, dry goods, snacks, and more for Operation Shoebox, a non-profit organization that provides support for troops deployed overseas and returning home.
“We are elated to have the support of our partners at FSI,” said LuAnn Bott, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Missouri and Kansas. “With this partnership, we are truly one step closer to achieving our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child. A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together, and unites communities — and that is exactly what FSI is doing with their generous gift. We are eternally grateful.”
