Marshall Wideman (Director), owner of Wideman Paint and Décor, calls the Foundation a good fit for his personal philosophy. “My family taught me to support the community that supports us,” he explains. “That’s something that I believe in.” Marshall says the idea of investing dollars and using the income to support the community makes sense. “If we want our communities to stay strong, we need to support local causes on an ongoing basis, not just for the moment. That’s exactly what the BRCF is all about!”
