ARS Restoration Specialists Wows with Overwhelming Support for Local Organizations
A Generous $325,000 Year-End Donation Propels Ellie Fund into 2019
December 21, 2018 – Needham, MA – On December 8, 2018, ARS Restoration Specialists (ARS) made an unprecedented donation of $325,000 to the Ellie Fund, a Needham based organization that provides invaluable assistance to women, men and families undergoing breast cancer treatment across Massachusetts. Steve Sorkin, Chief Sales Officer at ARS, presented the check to Ellie Fund Board of Directors and staff at Granite Links Country Club in Quincy during the company’s annual holiday celebration. “We are in absolute awe of the continued generosity the ARS team has demonstrated over the past 5 years. Their contributions, totaling more than 1 million dollars, have been instrumental in our ability to provide critical services to more than 800 breast cancer patients each year and will enable us to continue providing assistance to 1,000 patients in 2019,” says Ellie Fund Executive Director Meredith Bryan. This incredible donation is the culmination of year-long fundraising campaigns by ARS. Each year, ARS hosts a Casino Night in March, online football pool and golf tournament with the proceeds benefiting the Ellie Fund and Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation. Donations made by ARS Restoration Specialists at their holiday party totaled $750,000. “We continue to be impressed by the generosity of so many clients and friends for ARS’s charitable giving initiatives,” says Sorkin. “ARS is proud to continue to support the Ellie Fund’s mission of providing services to patients and their families battling breast cancer.” This contribution to the Ellie Fund will help jump start a year of continued growth for the local nonprofit. In 2018, the Ellie Fund launched its Metastatic Breast Cancer Support Program which extended the services offered through their long standing Healing Together Patient and Family Care Program to meet the unique needs of patients with a metastatic diagnosis. In 2019, the Ellie Fund looks to provide critical support and hope to 1,000 breast cancer patients through service grants totaling 1 million dollars. The generosity exhibited by the leadership at ARS brings the local organization one large step closer to achieving this goal. ARS provides 24/7 emergency disaster restoration and reconstruction services for residential and commercial properties across New England. ARS responds to any loss, emergency or claim involving flood, water, fire, smoke, mold, lead or asbestos remediation, clean up or restoration large and small. Since 2006, ARS has made charitable contributions totaling 4 million dollars to organizations in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
