Giving Back

As the owner of Paramount Fencing, I believe the character of any company should be defined by what they invest back into their community.  For me and my team,  it is all about the children and the families of children with disabilities   There is a warm place in our heart for children diagnosed with Autism and children whose time on earth will be cut short.

So our giving back is not just saying it.   We act.  We donate thousands of dollars and manpower and resources every year.   No questions ask.  Just a simple reply:  How can we help?

Sincerely,

Kip HudaKoz

Autism and The Autism Society of Greater Orlando.

It is a sad fact...one in fifty nine children born will be diagnosed with autism.  For boys, the odds increase to one in thirty six.  According to some recent studies, if nothing changes, by the year 2024, we could see the rate of autism affecting one in two children.  A staggering figure that demonstrates that autism will soon touch everyone's lives.

Think about it. Orlando and Oviedo.

According to the CDC and U.S. Census, there were 3,952,841 babies born in 2012.   If you do the math, there are 24 hours in a day or 8,760 hours in a year.   That translates to 451 babies per hour.    Apply the autism stats and 8 new kids will be born into the autism spectrum in the next hour.

ASGO fights the good fight.  They don't just promote autism awareness, they work to bring about autism acceptance and increased support. They provide real support to families directly affected by autism.  Most importantly, ASGO provides (not provided) hope, a safe place, a network of comfort and support for families affected by autism that speaks in one common voice, "You Are Not Alone!"

If you want to make a difference in your local community or you are a parent or family member looking for support, please consider joining us on Saturday, April 20, 2019 for ASGO's 14th Annual Autism Walk & Family Fun Day inside the Orange County Convention Center's North Concourse from 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Everyone is invited to become a sponsor, a vendor, or a participant.  The event is geared towards every member of the family with lots of fun activities to enjoy and information to receive.  The best part is that 100% of the funds raised stay right here in the Central Florida Community to support those living with autism today.

Blueberry Festival

The Florida Blueberry has come and gone.  According to the festival organizers, things did not go as plan.  The festival fell short of its funding and attendance goals which have affected their ability to pay creditor or beneficiaries alike.   This is really sad to hear, but we are hopeful the festival can regroup and continue to be a force of good in the community.

In the meantime, to ensure kids with Autism are not affected by the festival shortcomings, Paramount Fencing will step up and donate $4000.00 to the ASGO organizations on behalf of the Blueberry Festival.    We hope it helps both of these organizations alike.

Sincerely,

At Our New Home
So Why Did Paramount Fencing  Pick The Blueberry Festival?

Well, that is simple.    The Blueberry Festival is a not for profit organization that reinvests proceeds back into their community and local charities.   Some of our Favorite Charities happen to be the main beneficiaries.

Our decision became easier when the most awesome and caring person in the world, Michael Heard, set us down and painted her vision.    That is why, in a joint collaboration with Alumigaurd Aluminum Fence Products,  Barrette Outdoor Living, and Paramount Fencing teamed up and provided all fencing needs for the new venue.

As of current, all three companies have donated all materials and labor at raw cost, forgone all company profits, and installed over 3/4 of a mile of fence and gates.   The four reason why are listed below.

The Beneficiaries List.

    • The membership of The Florida Blueberry Growers Association is dedicated to one thing and one thing only.
