AURORA, IL — With over 58,000 total votes cast, Aftermath Services is honored to announce Yuri Williams as the grand prize winner of the 2019 #WhyWeServe Grant for his incredible efforts in helping the homeless and children battling cancer in his community. In appreciation, Aftermath will present Williams with a $5,000 grant check on September 6, 2019 at 12:00 PM at Long Beach City Hall, 411 W Ocean Blvd, Long Beach, CA to further support his commendable mission.
As a way to honor his mother’s life who died from cancer, Williams decided to turn grieving into action. For the past 5 years, he has been providing services to those who are battling cancer and other illnesses. He regularly dresses up as Spider Man, lifting the spirits of homeless and ill youth.
“There is no better way to show gratitude than to give to those that are in need,” Williams says when asked about his many ‘completed missions.’ Read William’s inspiring nomination letter.
As the premier provider of trauma and biohazard remediation cleaning for over 20 years, Aftermath understands the impact first responders have in their community. While the generosity and accomplishments of first responders aren’t always publicized, Aftermath is celebrating these Heroes through the #WhyWeServe Grant. This annual grant is our way of showing appreciation for the officers and first responders who are making a significant difference in the communities they serve. A total of $15,000 in grants were given away to seven first responders across the country in recognition for their efforts.
