Dramm Donates to Free to Smile Nonprofit

4/23/2014

Dramm Corp., an irrigation supplier, is "Springing for Hope." Each May, Dramm will donate financially to a nonprofit organization. This year, efforts include donating a portion of May's retail sales to Free to Smile.

Based in Columbus, Ohio, Free to Smile provides free surgery to children and young adults born with cleft lip and palate who live in underserved areas of the world.

"We salute Free to Smile's amazing work of inspiring individuals in the U.S. and helping people all around the world," said Heidi Dramm Becker, executive vice president of Dramm. "This is especially close to my heart, as our son Max was part of the Guatemala mission team last year. He saw firsthand the good that is being accomplished by Free to Smile."

During the 2013 mission that Max was a part of, Free to Smile changed the lives of 39 children, young adults and their families.

"The work Free to Smile does is a blessing to those with cleft lip and palate who otherwise would not be able to get the medical treatment they need," said Max.

Dramm's donation to Free to Smile is part of a new yearly initiative to support charitable work.
