One Wing Foundation Reaches Out to Grieving Families
Western Extrusions Corporation, based in Carrollton, Texas, offers high-quality aluminum extrusions to customers in the building and construction trades and the energy, transportation, and consumer goods industries. In addition, Western Extrusions supports a variety of charitable causes, including One Wing Foundation, which works to support families grieving over the stillbirth of a child.
One Wing Foundation is the product of two families’ devotion to the memories of the children they lost before birth. The parents came together to channel their personal pain into an organization that offers help and a public voice to those similarly bereaved.
The group raises funds to provide Texas parents of stillborn children with needed medical care, financial assistance, and emotional support and counseling after their loss. Working with the goal of furthering these parents’ healing and giving hope for the future, One Wing also hosts an online memory wall on which parents can inscribe their children’s names as an ongoing tribute.
The partner beneficiaries of One Wing’s support in 2016 included the Grief and Loss Center of North Texas, the William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.
