Naples, Florida, December 13th, 2016—Plantation shutter manufacturer, Naples Shutter, announces its involvement with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The company is donating $500 in custom plantation shutters to one lucky recipient, including measuring and installation. Naples Shutter has been part of the Southwest Florida community for over 35 years.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention or AFSP (www.afsp.org) raises awareness, aids in helping those affected by suicide and funds scientific research in order to save lives and act as a beacon of hope to the community. With chapters in all 50 states, the AFSP seeks to reduce the suicide rate in the U.S. by 20% by 2025. Suicide is the number one cause of death in the country, and the AFSP strives to bring awareness to the fact that it is preventable and by banding together, we can fight suicide. The organization sponsors various activities to raise funds and awareness to their cause, including community walks, prevention programs and funding for mental health programs.
The AFSP Public Policy Team provides volunteers with the tools needed to act as advocates for the prevention of suicide at the state and federal levels. These advocates help to pass policies that can help save lives and have won many victories at both state and federal levels, including the Excellence in Mental Health Act and mandatory programs for suicide prevention in schools.
Naples Shutter (www.naplesshutter.com), a family-owned, local manufacturer in Naples has been providing custom window treatments, such as plantation shutters, blinds and shades, hurricane protection and more to the residents of Southwest Florida and beyond since 1981. Brian Trecek, Co-Owner of the company is extremely honored to be a part of this cause.
“This organization touches on a topic that affects many of us. If it wasn’t for these dedicated members and what they’re doing for the prevention of suicide, the outcome would be much worse. We can only hope that one day, suicide will cease to exist,” says Trecek.
