February 2017

Dear Friend of our Foundation:

As the northeast begins to see signs of spring, our foundation is ready for the growth that this new season will bring us.

We started the month with deliveries for Henry's List - our program which is like an angel tree (but all-year long). Our small but mighty group of volunteers delivered beds and dressers to two families in Pittsburgh's North Side - helping them just a little by bringing a bit of order and peace to their lives. We continue to need beds and dressers - the most in demand items - please email us (info@emmamunsonfoundation.com) if you can help! Read more below about how your love helps make magic for local families in need.

And February marked the beginning of our 'scholarship season' - through your support we are able to award three scholarships each year, with the first being one that has a great back story about how Art touched Emma's life. It was involvement in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards that helped guide her to VCU to study art. The awards ceremony this year was another great day.

As we move through 2017 we want each of you to know how much we appreciate your support and truly consider you to be our foundation. The financial and volunteer support provided by you, our faithful, allows us to keep moving along on our mission to promote charitable activity to improve the quality of life. We are excited about what the coming months will bring to us.

Much Love to you all!
Denise & Michael Munson
Fourth annual scholarship awarded this month  
On a beautiful Sunday afternoon in February, our foundation once again awarded a memorial scholarship as part of the Scholastic Art & Writing program. We had the chance to tour the art assembled at nearby LaRoche College and were in awe of the work by these young artists. Walking in the path of Andy Warhol and Truman Capote, we hope that the support that our foundation provided will help an aspiring artist to follow their passion.

As we celebrate LOVE on Valentines Day, it seemed fitting to help provide love to children in need  
SOS Children's Villages creates stable, loving families for orphaned and abandoned children. Something that many of us take for granted, but as we all remember we are where we are because of the home that our parents gave us. We love the way this charity helps provide the very necessity of family to orphaned and abandoned children and are proud to provide them some support. A donation was made from our foundation to help keep the family building going.

In the month of LOVE, Henry's List really delivered!  
With the help of Emma's Peace Gang, our volunteers delivered beds and dressers from your homes to theirs. Working with our partner Providence Connections, we were introduced to two families who needed a helping hand.
