“Bare Necessities” Fundraiser for Family Nurturing Center

28 Nov

FB_Post_5Giving just feels better than receiving. We truly believe in that sentiment, and the Butler Family of Dealerships, along with Radio Medford’s NOW 93.7, 105.1 the WOLF, 880 KCMX AM, and ESPN Radio 580 AM and 96.1 FM the BULL are partnering for the Bare Necessities holiday promotion to benefit the Family Nurturing Center in Medford. Our goal is to help children between the ages of 0 and 6 years old who are less fortunate than others.

“When children come to us, they often need the bare necessities that many others take for granted,” stated Lisa O’Connor, Executive Director of Family Nurturing Center. “This wonderful creative holiday fundraiser is exactly what we need to serve those less fortunate in our community. I couldn’t be more excited.” The Bare Necessities fundraiser will run from now through Wednesday, December 23rd.

The Family Nurturing Center, which opened its first center in Jackson County in 2006, has grown from a small operation serving two toddlers and their families to an organization that has supported more than 1,000 children. Our goal for this fundraiser is simple: do what we can to help one of the most incredible resources in the Rogue Valley prevent the abuse and neglect of young children.

The Butler dealerships in Ashland and Medford will be participating by encouraging their staff, families and friends to help by providing an item from the “Holiday Wish List.” The radio stations will be encouraging the public to drop off donations at Butler Ford, Acura, Hyundai or Kia. The wish list items are not extravagant or spendy, but play essential roles in the health, safety, and happiness of young children growing up in difficult circumstances.

Please join us in giving back to those who stand to gain the most from generosity at this giving time of year: underprivileged children. There are few ventures we engage in as a company that we believe in as deeply as this one, and with your help, we hope to make a very real difference this holiday season.
