The Joseph Groh Foundation, a 501c3 public charity dedicated to providing information and financial assistance to those in the contracting trades who are living with a life altering disability, received a generous donation from the Boxer family at its recent fundraising event. The all-volunteer foundation annually hosts three golf tournaments to raise funds to support grants for bathroom remodels, wheelchair vans, and rehabilitative and assistive technology equipment.
The donation from the Boxer family was presented to the organization founder, Joseph Groh, on the anniversary of its 10th golf tournament held in Dallas. “The Boxer family donation allows for the sustainability of the Joseph Groh Foundation into the future. With this donation, the Foundation can continue to provide invaluable resources to those individuals and families who suddenly find themselves in very vulnerable positions,” said Groh.
“Our family wanted to give back to an industry that has taken care of us for many years," said Scott Boxer, spokesperson for the Boxer family. "We have witnessed the difference the Joseph Groh Foundation has made in the lives of people from our industry who find themselves in the most difficult situations.” Boxer is currently on the board of directors for Entouch Controls and is the former president/CEO of Service Experts and former president of Lennox Industries.
“‘Thank you’ does not adequately express how grateful we are for the Boxer family donation to the Foundation,” said Vicki LaPlant, president of the board of directors for the foundation.
The Joseph Groh Foundation has given more than $550,000 to 59 families needing assistance in the past 10 years.
