NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 5WPR, the 2013 American Business Awards PR Agency of the year today announced its selection as the agency of record for the National Law Enforcement & Firefighters Children's Foundation (NLEAFCF), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides financial support through scholarships, grants and events for families across the country who have lost a loved one in the line of duty and face significant financial hardship due to tragic circumstances.
As the primary goal, 5W Public Relations will execute a complete public relations program designed to increase the awareness of the foundation in conjunction with their 13th annual Thanksgiving Parade Breakfast where roughly 1,300 children and family members of fallen law enforcement personnel and firefighters will gather at Bryant Park Grill for breakfast and front-row viewing of the Parade from Bryant Park.
"We are thrilled to partner with 5W Public Relations, a results-driven firm that understands the nonprofit landscape as well as our group's vision," says Alfred Kahn, president of the NLEAFCF. "5WPR has an exceptional track record of creating results for nonprofit organizations; we couldn't be more excited to work with them."
"The National Law Enforcement & Firefighters Children's Foundation plays a critical role in upholding the unwritten contract we as a society have with the brave men and women of our law enforcement and firefighting agencies by supporting the education of children who have lost a parent or have had a parent tragically injured in the line of duty. We are delighted to have been selected as the Foundation's PR agency of record and are confident that our experience in the nonprofit space will prove valuable in drawing attention to this phenomenal organization," said Ronn Torossian, CEO and President of 5W Public Relations.
