Angel Eyes is the winner of the $1,000 Caring Community Giveaway from Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric.
Angel Eyes provides bereavement support to families whose lives have been impacted by the sudden, unexpected death of an infant or toddler, including SIDS, SUID, SUDC, miscarriage and stillbirth loss. They offer free professional bereavement counseling, a support group, peer connections and community referrals to those who are grieving.
“It would be the worst thing in life to lose a child. I don’t think anyone truly ever gets over that kind of loss. I’m honored to give to this amazing group who provides so much to those grieving from the loss of a child,” said John Ward, Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric president.
Angel Eyes, formerly The Colorado SIDS Program, was incorporated in 1981 and represents a merger of the Colorado Chapter of the National SIDS Foundation, a parent organization formed in 1967, and the SIDS Information and Counseling Project that was funded in 1976 through a federal grant. The Colorado SIDS Program was the first and continues to be one of the few SIDS organizations to combine a parent and professional organization into one agency to provide a statewide approach to SIDS.
Angel Eyes services are offered to adults, children, and couples who are searching to find meaning after the devastating loss of their precious infant or toddler. Angel Eyes helps those grieving get through the trauma, redefine who they are and find the path to recovery. At Angel Eyes, they understand that parents and their loved ones have very special needs during this time and do not want anyone to go through the death of their infant or toddler alone.
“Without the help and support from Companies like Applewood and their charitable donations, we would not be able to offer FREE services to the people who have had to endure the unimaginable loss of an infant or toddler,” said Patty VanGilder, Executive Director, Angel Eyes.
