Disaster Restoration Services of 338 Airline Ave., Portland, hosted the first annual Family Fun Day on Saturday, September 15th at Portland’s Riverfront Park. The event included various vendors, food provided by Musterdogs, DRS with the help of Pizzeria DaVinci of Cobalt and Vecchitto’s Italian Ice truck, many inflatables, kids carnival games, many raffles, touch-a-truck and stuff-a-truck sponsored by NWiR (National Women in Roofing).
Overall, we were able to write a check to the CT Burn Care Foundation for $5,729.92! When presenting the check to Kathlene Gerrity Monday, September 24th, she informed us that “with this donation, we are now able to accept two new children into the camp next year! Without this donation, they would have been turned down.” The Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp is a safe, natural, outdoor environment for children 8-18 who have survived life-altering burn injuries. Campers pay nothing out of pocket, all expenses are paid by the CT Burn Care Foundation.
“One of the core values of DRS is helping people while helping rebuild communities. We have connected with a non-profit organization dear to our hearts and we are very proud to work with the CT Burn Care Foundation and help them as much as we can,” said Danny Strong, President of DRS.
