VALDOSTA, Ga. – On Tuesday, Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga. presented a donation provided by the park’s team members to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Lowndes County.
“In the spirit of giving this Christmas, our team members voted to take the funds normally set aside for employee celebrations and give them directly to the Children’s Advocacy Center,” said Jon Vigue, Wild Adventures Vice President and General Manager. “Our team expressed an overwhelming amount of support and appreciation for the important service the CAC provides to our community.”
Wild Adventures presented a $1,500 donation to help fund the CAC’s mission to minimize the trauma of child abuse victims.
“I think this year stands out more than ever for us and the families we serve,” said Ashley Lindsay, Children’s Advocacy Center Executive Director. “On top of the year’s added stress, our families are also learning their child has been victimized and has been sexually abused by someone they know, trust and love. Typically these crimes don’t come from a stranger, and that makes the impact so extremely real. We are so grateful for every donation we receive because we are able to use it to make a profound impact on the over 700 children and families that have come through CAC in 2020.”
Wild Adventures and its employees support numerous community organizations and charities every year. Most recently, the park donated 9,000 tickets to 50 non-profit organizations and 24 police departments to give to children and families to attend Christmas celebrations at the park.
Wild Adventures Christmas is currently running select days now through Dec. 27. For more information, visit WildAdventures.com.
