Contract Manufacturing Solutions, Inc., Cornerstone Society member
“The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a great organization. We were looking for a way to give back and what better way than to help grant children’s wishes.” - Edwin Aguilera, President of Contract Manufacturing Solutions, Inc. If Edwin could make a wish, it would be that “there was a cure for all diseases so that there would not be a need for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Until then, we are proud to work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help bring children’s dreams to realization.”

Sheridan House Family Ministries
Sheridan House was established as a home for boys with behavioral issues. Since then, the Sheridan House Residential Program has grown from a one home caring for 8 boys to five homes caring for almost 70 middle-school aged boys and girls each year. Since its early years, Sheridan House has chosen not to receive government funding, believing that the community which they serve will provide support. Thus, they are thankful to be 100% supported by individual, corporate, foundation, and church donations. Their next challenge, as envisioned by the leadership, is to expand their residential care program by building additional children’s homes. In addition, they would like to offer duplex-type housing, vocational assistance, and a day care facility on the property in an effort to provide single mothers a means of having a “fresh start” as they put their lives back together.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane organization to be established in North America. The mission, as stated by ASPCA founder, Henry Bergh, in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” The ASPCA works to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with shelters nationwide. As the first humane organization to be equipped with legal authority to investigate and make arrests for crimes against animals, they are entirely dedicated to fulfilling the ASPCA mission through nonviolent approaches. The organization provides local and national leadership in three key areas: caring for pet parents and pets, providing positive outcomes for at-risk animals and serving victims of animal cruelty.
