Thorncroft Honored by Phillies Charities at Annual Holiday Giving Party
The Philadelphia Phillies Charities recently honored Thorncroft, along with several other non-profit organizations, at their annual Holiday Giving Party, which took place on December 14th, 2015. Each organization was recognized as a Community Hero and awarded with a generous grant.
The grant money received by Thorncroft will go directly to the Peter Quick Memorial Fund, established by Board Members George Rubin and Perc Moser, in memory of Pete Quick, a Thorncroft Board Member and Vietnam Vet who recently passed away. The Peter Quick Memorial Fund was founded to enable Veterans to participate in Thorncroft’s equine therapy program.
“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of the Phillies Charities and honored to have been selected as one of their Community Heroes,” Sallie Dixon remarked. “Our Military Veterans deserve access to services and therapy that will help with their continued recovery, and we are proud to be able to offer this support.”
