Smith & Wilkinson is proud to sponsor The Center for Grieving Children in Portland, ME for the second year! The Center is a unique organization that provides emotional and community support for young people enduring the loss or serious illness of a loved one. Statistics reveal that one in seven children will experience the death of a parent or sibling before their 20th birthday; it’s clear that the work done by the Center for Grieving Children cannot be understated.
The Center for Grieving Children hosts many events throughout the year to fund their essential programming. Some of their upcoming events include:
- “Swing Fore the Center” Memorial Golf Tournament (September 11, 2018)
- Children’s Grief Awareness Day (November 15, 2018)
- Radio Mark-A-Thon (December 11, 2018)
- Love Really Counts auction and dinner gala (February 1, 2019)
