Spring has sprung at Siskin Children’s Institute thanks to the generosity of Southeastern Salvage and Carla and Bubba Morgan, longtime supporters of the Institute and its work serving children with special needs in the community.
The Morgans give their time, talent, and treasure to support the Institute and have recently helped refresh many of the classrooms, a multipurpose room, and outdoor spaces. Classrooms in the Siskin Early Learning Center enjoyed new furnishings including rugs, while a space often used for therapy and other enrichment programs received new flooring.
“We are incredibly grateful to Southeastern Salvage and the Morgan family for their generosity,” said Derek Bullard, president and CEO of Siskin Children’s Institute. “Thanks to their kindness, families have a welcoming atmosphere when walking in to the building, children have rugs and other furnishings in the classroom, and our multipurpose space now has flooring that allows for more activities and that will last for years to come.”
In addition, Southeastern Salvage and the Morgan family also helped spruce up the front of the building by updating the landscaping and clearing some overgrown vines.
The Morgan family and their support continues as they’ve served as co-chairs for several fundraising events supporting the Institute including StarNight and StyleWorks, signature fundraising events each year. Carla has also served for many years on the Institute board of directors and recently chaired the development and marketing committee. Additionally, their daughter, McCall Morgan, co-founded of Serving it Up for Siskin, a tennis tournament organized by the Baylor School Tennis Team that benefits children with special needs served by the Institute.
The Morgan family have even helped provide a Santa experience for many of the children Siskin serves by providing stockings and small gifts for children in December each year.
“Thank you to the Morgan family and Southeastern Salvage for ensuring that families caring for children with special needs feel welcome and at ease when at the Institute," said Linda McReynolds, director of Development and Communications. “We are so grateful for their involvement and support for the last 30 years.”
