ATLANTA -- The Wilbert Foundation and Wilbert Burial Vaults of Georgia have awarded a $5,000 grant to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The check was presented on February 2 by representatives of Wilbert Burial Vaults of Georgia (Atlanta, Tucker & Macon), Bailey Monument and Vault (Waycross), Columbus Wilbert (Columbus), DePue Wilbert (Savannah), and Mastergrave Services (Bogart).

The children's hospital will use the funds to provide an annual memorial service at three Georgia facilities. The grant will also assist the purchase of special books, packets, and pamphlets that help siblings understand grief and loss.

Formed by Wilbert Funeral Services, Inc. in September 2002, the Wilbert Foundation provides crucial funds and resources for children and their families coping with the trauma of grief, death, or preparation for surgery.

By the close of 2011, the foundation will have distributed $535,000 in total grants, including funds for the country's most comprehensive training program for pediatric chaplains. The Wilbert Foundation remains diligent in its journey to build an endowment fund of $1,000,000. It has also given a total of 2,750 teddy bears to grieving children at 86 hospitals.

Wilbert Burial Vaults of Georgia supports Georgia funeral homes and cemeteries with the personalized burial and cremation products and services they need to provide meaningful graveside memorials.
