Are you a non-profit looking for some financial support?
We want to hear from you. We will update our list of non-profits we support as we add new benefactors.
Maine Alzheimer’s Chapter
We proudly support the Maine Alzheimer’s Chapter and their efforts to support the many families who are doing battle with this terrible and incurable disease. Elizabeth Pride, David’s mother is an Alzheimer’s victim. Elizabeth is David’s grandest inspiration, confidant, and friend. May God bless her and her husband in their journey with this heartless disease.
“LEAP supports people with developmental, cognitive intellectual disabilities to be actively involved in their home communities.”
Social Impressions chooses to financially support LEAP because of one beautiful little girl that our CEO, David, met when he was in High School named Molly. Molly is a child with Autism that David had the chance to work with, sing with, and create all kinds of trouble with. 🙂 Molly was and is a rockstar and though we no longer know where she is, we’re certain she’s doing it with glamour and finesse.
