Thanks to you all, who participated, volunteered and donated the last two years!
From the proceeds raised at the 2021 tournament, we were able to donate $20,000 to the Jefferson Center for Mental Health, specifically for the Recovery Center located at 5th and Zang. This money established the Max Plumb Memorial Scholarship Fund and we got to tour the Center to see the effect of your support. The dollars go a long way to help with everyday needs of the 15 or so patients. They need everything from basic hygiene products; to positive recovery reading materials, art and gardening supplies (keeping hands and minds busy); to backpacks and clothing basics and many more simple life needs, that we often take for granted. Many patients show up with next to nothing, and without our support leave the same way.
Also, we were also able to partner with the City of Wheat Ridge, Jefferson Center and Lutheran Hospital to fund a full time mental health counselor to be at Wheat Ridge High School. WRHS has not had a mental health counselor on site for some time, due to School District and State funding cuts over the years. The staff is very happy to have a mental health professional on site in the coming school year.
After the tragic passing of Max Plumb in September 2020, his father, Sean Plumb, and his family feel a strong desire to channel their grief and use it to help make a positive impact on the local community.
Sean and his family hope that by supporting the mission of Applewood Community Foundation that they can help other families not have to feel the heartache of losing someone too soon.
Max will not be forgotten. We will honor his life by helping to build up the local community, support kids and schools and continue to develop stronger neighborhoods and households.
A donation to the Applewood Community Foundation is a meaningful way to support the family of Max Plumb during this difficult time. This is intended to be a continuing memorial to Max.
