Bricks Without Straw, an internet marketing and website design firm based in Charleston, has established the Frank Brown Community Partnership, a program offering free web design services to a community non-profit organization in West Virginia in need of assistance.   The firm will accept applications for assistance between Dec. 1 – Dec. 31, 2013.

One applicant per year will be chosen for assistance. Applications can be found on the firm's website at www.BricksWithoutStraw.com.
 
Jamie Summers, president of Bricks Without Straw, said, "Continuing in the loving and generous spirit of my grandfather Frank Brown, our community partnership seeks to help charitable organizations with technology services to provide them a portal to the world to help them achieve their worthwhile mission."
 
Summers said Bricks Without Straw will select a West Virginia-based charity that will receive website services free of charge for one year. Services will include either initial website design and development, or redevelopment of an existing brand and website.
 
Applications should be submitted by representatives of the interested non-profit organization.  Qualifying non-profits must be approved by the State of West Virginia, with offices and/or headquarters in the state.  Applications must be received no later than December 31, 2013.
