THE WOODLANDS, TX (August 11, 2009)  Woodforest Charitable Foundation has recently given $5,000 in support of Bridgewood Farms.

Located in Conroe, TX, Bridgewood Farms provides day programs and services for individuals with special needs.  In partnership with the local community, they enable individuals who are intellectually disabled to reach their highest potential.  Through continual education, they learn and improve their functional skills, acquire meaningful job skills for the possibility of working in the community, experience the joys that come with their accomplishments at the Center, and grow socially and emotionally.

“Bridgewood Farms is a wonderful organization that is dedicated to working with persons with special needs on an individual basis to enrich their lives through vocational training, multiple skill training, education and interaction,” said Kim Marling, Vice President of Woodforest Charitable Foundation.  “These individuals have the opportunity to work together on hand-made craft projects such as Christmas tree ornaments, ceramics and doormats that they are able to create and sell which in turn supports their own programs. Our Foundation is committed to supporting such charities that provide a positive impact on the lives of others.”

The Woodforest Charitable Foundation was created by Woodforest National Bank in 2005 as a direct result of its desire to support and invest in the communities in which it serves.  The Foundation is creating a legacy of commitment to those in need, enriching lives and communities through dedicated leadership and faithful administration by providing funding to qualifying 501(c)(3) charities.
