“This news is so exciting”, says Sandy Kearney, Founder of Angels Against Abuse. “Thank you and your staff at Boulevard Burgers for choosing Angels Against Abuse as their local charity for National Abuse Awareness Month. Children are our future, and it is only thanks to businesses and organizations like yours that give Hope to these children for a better tomorrow for the children and youth who are victims of child abuse and neglect. From the bottom of our hearts, the Angels thank you for helping us to help them!”

The first week of May, the restaurant will present the charity with a check, and they’re asking for the public’s help in increasing those numbers.

We also love kids and families, so we hope this effort will reinforce that message” says Charles Marco, Owner of Boulevard Burgers.

ABOUT ANGELS AGAINST ABUSE: Angels Against Abuse (“Angels”) was created by a small group of visionaries who saw a need to provide assistance to children beyond the scope of basic services covered by the foster care system. Most often, these children are removed forcibly from their homes due to abuse, and they are placed in the care of agency housing or private foster homes. The experience is traumatic, and the children often leave with nothing but the clothes on their backs. The Angels team set out to help these kids by providing goods and services not covered by the foster care system; helping to reduce the trauma of home removal; trying to create as many traditional childhood experiences for these children living in non-traditional conditions; and working with children and families to stop the cycle of abuse.
