• Hillcrest Staff Kick Off Annual Fund Drive 01/01/2010
The staff of Hillcrest Educational Centers kicked off the agency's 2010 Annual Campaign fund drive by pledging over $45,000. This record amount pledged by staff marks the third consecutive year that Hillcrest staff have pledged over $40,000 to the annual fund drive.
Hillcrest President Gerard Burke said, "We are extremely proud of our employees at Hillcrest who literally work around the clock in the name of compassion and dedication. Each person is to be commended for their generous support and belief in the work we do here at Hillcrest."
With a campaign goal of $100,000 - funds donated to the Annual Campaign will support a number of new and existing Hillcrest initiatives including providing resources to support Hillcrest's rapidly growing work with children affected by Autism.
Burke said, "Hillcrest has been changing the lives of the most fragile children for nearly 25 years and with the support we receive through this campaign, we will continue to bring hope to the future of the children who need us."
