WKW partner, Bill Winingham, and marketing coordinator, Matt Houston attended the Joseph Maley Foundation’s Open House held on Thursday, January 24th. In September of 2012, JMF opened the 4,500 square feet Joseph Maley Foundation Enrichment Center. The Open House gave supporters, volunteers, and families the opportunity to tour their new facility and get a look at the foundation’s highlights from 2012. The Joseph Maley Foundation was founded in 2008 by John Maley and wife Vivian Maley to serve children and young adults of all abilities
The bottom picture shows puppets from JMF’s Kids on the Block program. This program is a way to teach awareness and acceptance of all others with the help of child size puppets. The first puppet troupe of eighth graders was established in 2009. After extensive training in the effective use of these puppets, the puppet troupe hosts puppet shows and Q&A sessions to teach Pre-K thru 4th grade students the importance of accepting others.
We’re proud supporters of the Joseph Maley Foundation and their programs. If you’d like more information about JMF or interested in volunteering, please click here to visit their website.
