Thanks to generous gifts from hundreds of friends, The Children’s Village qualified for a $1 million matching grant from Pat Lanza for our new Activities Center. Thank you to Mrs. Lanza, her family, and everyone who helped us meet this important goal.
The funds raised are being used for the Lanza Activities Center, which has become the hub for life on our Dobbs Ferry campus as well as a resource for families in our community programs. In addition to recreation facilities (including an Olympic-length swimming pool and high-end fitness room), the Center also offers career-training opportunities through its cafe, commercial kitchen, and barbershop.
Mrs. Lanza has supported The Children’s Village for many years and has taken a personal interest in older youth finding permanent families, completing high school, going on to post-secondary education, and successfully getting and keeping a job.
No matter how big or small, your donation, with the support of the Lanza Family Foundation, is giving youth the chance they may have never had. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to our children and families.
