AAS Restoration Continues Support of Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics
Wood Dale, IL – Disaster Kleenup International, Inc., North America''s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, today announced that DKI Member Company AAS Restoration recently presented a donation of more than $4,000 to Children’s Memorial Burn Unit. These funds were raised by AAS Restoration during their seventh annual Texas Hold-em poker tournament, a charity event specifically designed to raise funds for the hospital’s burn unit.
“The children of some of our employees have been treated compassionately at Children’s Mercy Hospital,” stated Amy Storts, co-owner of the firm. “My husband, Bruce, and I have a granddaughter who was in Children’s Mercy’s care for nearly a month when she was less than eight weeks old. She received the best care we could have hoped for. Our business deals with a variety of disasters, including fire that can affect a family. Our company can repair a damaged home; our concern is for the children who are affected.”
“In an effort to give back to our community, we began our charity tournaments in 2007. When we discussed the many worthy causes which would benefit from our fundraising, we decided the Hospital’s Burn Unit would be the best fit for AAS Restoration’s sponsorship. Burn victims need the best care available and we believe Children’s Mercy’s Burn Unit provides that exceptional care. This unit is truly a blessing for the Kansas City area and we feel privileged to be able to help in even a small way.”
Over the past three and a half years, AAS Restoration has contributed more than $13,500 to the Burn Unit. In addition, AAS has collected new socks and underwear for the burn patients as well as gently-used books for Children’s Mercy’s outpatient clinic program, “Reach Out and Read”.
AAS Restoration will host their next charity tournament in the spring of 2011. It is open to the public, but reservations are requested and can be made by calling 816.861.1550.
