Leading Dryer Vent Maintenance and Repair Franchise Raises $25,000 to Benefit Children’s Burn Foundation
Dryer Vent Wizard Raises Funds for Non-Profit for Eighth Consecutive Year.
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — Exceeding its 2018 donation, Dryer Vent Wizard, North America’s leading dryer vent cleaning, maintenance, and repair franchise, raised $25,000 throughout the past year to benefit Children’s Burn Foundation, a non-profit organization that reached more than 84,644 child burn survivors and their families. The organization provides state-of-the-art reconstructive treatment, emergency family assistance, survivor and family camps, counseling, a teen support program, and prevention as well as education programs.
Every October during National Fire Prevention Month, Dryer Vent Wizard and Children’s Burn Foundation work to raise awareness about the dangers of fires. In 2019, throughout the months of October, November, and December, Dryer Vent Wizard raised funds through donations from franchisees, corporate staff, and family and friends. Additionally, activities were held by the Dryer Vent Wizard home office staff to help raise money.
“We are excited to share it’s been another successful year of raising funds for Children’s Burn Foundation, an organization that parallels our values and is close to our hearts,” said Jason Kapica, President of Dryer Vent Wizard. “As the leading dryer vent maintenance, cleaning, and repair franchise, we place great importance on raising awareness for fire safety, and partnering with Children’s Burn Foundation does just that.”
Since 2012, the franchise has donated a total of nearly $133,000 to Children’s Burn Foundation.
“Every year, we are blown away by Dryer Vent Wizard’s dedication to Children’s Burn Foundation,” said Sharon Townsend, Director of Children’s Burn Foundation. “We are so thankful we are able to partner with a company that has a mission aligned with ours. Our foundation is looking forward to continuing this partnership and raising awareness for this mighty cause.”
