The Moyer Foundation, founded in 2000 by Major League Baseball pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen, has announced the addition of five Seattle business leaders to its board of trustees, bringing the total to 13, according to Susan Hansen, board chair and Director of Facilities Operations for Amgen.
One of those elected is Magnolia’s Bert Lundh, founder of Bertil O. Lundh Construction and the Porcelain Gallery, Inc.
The mission of The Moyer Foundation (moyerfoundation.org), is to empower children in distress by providing education and support in order to help them live healthy and inspired lives. The Foundation created and funds Camp Erin®, the largest national network of free bereavement camps for children and teens ages 6 through 17 grieving the death of someone close to them. The organization’s Camp Mariposa® is a first-of-its-kind free program for children ages 9 to 12 facing the difficult challenges associated with living with an addicted family member.
Noted Karen Moyer, “No child deserves to live life without hope, comfort and support. The work of our board and hundreds of volunteers around the U.S. is vital and gives thousands of children the potential and power to live healthy and inspired lives.”
The Moyer Foundation has offices in both Seattle and Philadelphia. Seattle offices are at 2426 32nd Ave W. in Magnolia.
