KALAMAZOO, Mich.—He has died, but Bill Wright’s legacy in helping abused and neglected will live on at Community Healing Centers.
Bill Wright passed away Dec. 28, 2013. For years, his charity “Wright for Kids” supported kids traumatized by abuse and neglect.
Wright was also a pivotal force in raising money and encouraging others to donate to the Community Healing Centers’ Roof Sit. Thursday night at campaign kick-off dinner, children walked into Carabba’s with signs spelling out “thank you Bill Wright for kids” before the announcement came: the children’s wing of the Elizabeth Upjohn Community Healing Center will officially be named the Bill Wright Children’s Advocacy Center.
“This is the perfect homecoming for Wright for Kids…the right time, the right place. It anchors a secure legacy of caring and compassion to Bill’s name,” says Sally Reames, CEO of Community Healing Centers.
