Two of the primary foundations we support are the McKenna Claire Foundation based out of Huntington Beach and HomeAid Orange County.
The McKenna Claire Foundation works to raise money for pediatric brain cancer research. Founders and close friends to all of us at Essex, David and Christine Wetzel lost their daughter to cancer and they have both dedicated their lives to helping no other families have endure the same experience. It is this passion for helping others that has driven them to so much success with their foundations research and why we have become so dedicated to their cause.
HomeAid raises money to support the homeless community through shelters and care packages. There are branches throughout the country and they all do incredible work. They embody our slogan of “Bringing Families Home” and this is why we have been so proud of our connection with this foundation.
We have chosen these two charities because they coincide so closely with our dedication to families and bringing them home, whether it be a physical house or making sure one day all children will be able to return home to their families.
