Security Service Charitable Foundation donates $2,000 to Bear-O-Care
Donation to help keep disabled patrons safe amidst COVID-19
SAN ANTONIO, TX (December 3, 2020) — The Security Service Charitable Foundation is helping Bear-O Care provide a safe environment for individuals with multiple disabilities who need all day care. As many of Bear-O Care’s patrons are highly vulnerable to germs and illness, the Security Service Charitable Foundation’s $2,000 donation will be used to purchase a high-capacity washer and dryer to clean clothing, bedding and bibs daily; as well as six air purifiers to help with the airborne germs.
“Covid-19 has created unparalleled challenges for high-risk populations like the people we serve at Bear-O Care,” said Trudi O’Brien, cofounder and manager for Bear-O Care. “The Security Service Charitable Foundation donation will help us to be better equipped to provide a safe place to care for these individuals.”
Bear-O Care was founded on the desires of parents and caregivers to provide a community approach to caring for individuals with multiple disabilities. This resource and the network it inspires, strengthens families and caregivers while facilitating change. Currently, Bear-O Care supports 32 individuals on a daily basis in the Salt Lake County area. They are also opening a new location in Bountiful to care for even more individuals in need.
“Bear-O Care is a haven of hope, creating more fulfilled lives for people with disabilities as well as their families and caregivers,” said Ben Wiseman senior vice president of member service—Mountain West Region for Security Service Federal Credit Union. “The Security Service Charitable Foundation is honored to provide this $2,000 donation to help them continue operating safely amidst the increased challenges of Covid-19.”
The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union’s market areas.
