SOUDERTON, Pa., Dec. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Word FM, a local, faith-based radio station, and the Souderton-Telford Rotary have partnered with Univest Foundation to establish the Stone & Flick Children Fund to assist in raising funds for the Stone daughters and for Anthony Flick, surviving children who lost their parents and siblings after the devastating tragedy in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania on Monday, December 15.
"We know that we can never put back together the pieces that these children have lost, but our hope is that as the generosity of our community members comes forth, we'll be able to provide a little peace and comfort," Word FM station manager, Dave Baker said.
The fund has been jumpstarted with a $5,000 donation – $3,000 of which is from Univest Corporation, $1,000 from Word FM and $1,000 from Souderton-Telford Rotary.
"Our community has been hit hard by this unthinkable tragedy," said Jim Leary, chief of police for Souderton Borough and president of Souderton-Telford Rotary Club. "We are responding as our community always does – united to show our support for the children who need to know we stand beside them and are here to help them move forward."
Individuals who are interested in donating can do so in the following ways:
- Go online to WordFM.org to make a general fund donation via online payment
- Send checks payable to Univest Foundation and designate "Stone & Flick Children Fund" in the memo line. Mail to Univest Foundation, 14 North Main Street, PO Box 559, Souderton, PA 18964
- If individuals donating wish to direct funds to one of the children, please include their name in the check memo line
Univest Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization so all donations are tax deductible. Donors can be assured that their donations will be secured in a private account, growing with interest until all funds are designated to the children. A funds management team will be formed to handle the disbursements.
