Christopher Medeiros, owner of South Coast Towing Inc., New Bedford, recently donated $15,000 to support mental health programs at Child & Family Services. The donation was a result of his annual “Cares for Kids” event held in November.

“A donation of this magnitude goes a long way to enhance our programs that provide direct services to those in need,” stated Susan Remy, Director of Development. “We are honored that Mr. Medeiros chose to support the vital work we do in the community to heal and strengthen the lives of children and families.”

“We are fortunate to have such a support system of sponsors, friends and family that have come together for another successful event, stated Mr. Medeiros. “We are blessed to have people like this in the world that come together to raise funds for CFS to assist the unfortunate families that they help each and every day. I am thankful for all the sponsors, donations, attendees, and to the staff at CFS. Without all of you, the 3rd annual South Coast Towing Cares for Kids event would not have grown into such a success event. We will be holding a 4th event next year and can’t wait to see everyone again.”

“Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making a difference in a child’s life, “said Mr. Medeiros. “May God bless these children and their families.”
