MCFAPA beneficiaries of 1st Annual Gratitude Gala

On Friday, November 15th the Madison County Foster & Adoptive Parent Association was the beneficiaries of Infinity Tax & Financial Planning‘s 1st Annual Gratitude Gala. This Gala was for Infinity’s investment clients as a way to give back to the local community.

Attendees arrived at The Ledges with donations of new clothing to benefit The Den by MCFAPA – the clothing closet at DHR for children coming into care. Music was provided by Cotton and Clover. There were also raffles and ways to donate to MCFAPA during the event. During this event, $3295 was raised for MCFAPA in addition to nearly 3 tables full of clothing.

We want to thank Andy Zorovich and Rachel Campbell from Infinity Tax for putting on such a great event!

Giving Tuesday is December 3rd!

Save the Date! #GivingTuesday is December 3! We’re proud to be a part of this global celebration of giving. As there are numerous organizations out there doing wonderful work, we hope that you will join in supporting MCFAPA as we continue to care for those in care here in Madison County!

News Stations highlight MCFAPA

Several local Huntsville news stations were in attendance as MCFAPA delivered over 320 new pairs of shoes and thousands of pairs of socks and underwear to Madison County DHR. These items will ensure that children coming into care have the neccesseties needed to make it through their first day and night.

We appreciate all of the help to make this happen. Thank you to Quantitech in Action for the $5,000 grant that was used to purchase the shoes. Thanks to Academy Sports in Madison for helping procure different sizes and styles from stores all around the SE. BIG thank you to the businesses, churches, and citizens of Madison County that helped with our Drop Your Drawers drive.
