Making a difference in the lives of our youth is so important.
Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 02, 2012
In an effort to give back to the local area that has provided Girard Equipment such a great location and workforce, President of Girard Equipment, Mr. Timothy Girard decided to launch the H.E.T.Y Award (Helping to Equip Today's Youth).
The recipient of the first ever H.E.T.Y Award was the Gifford Youth Activity Center located in the same area as the Girard Equipment Manufacturing facility. "Being able to award this check to such a great organization in Gifford where Girard Equipment has such a big presence from location to employees was such an honor. Angelia and Freddie truly have passion for what they do and the kids they help along the way are so much better for it. I'm just happy to provide these grant funds that offer those in need a hand up not a hand out," says Timothy Girard.
The award is in the amount of $300 and will be presented monthly to a different youth focused group or event. The award will be given during a mini ceremony held at the Girard Equipment headquarters the last Tuesday of every month.
