Spaulding Youth Center Honored with $10,000.00 Grant from People’s United Community FoundationFebruary 21, 2019
Spaulding Youth Center is thrilled to announce it has been honored with a grant of $10,000.00 from People’s United Community Foundation, the philanthropic arm of People’s United Bank, N.A. The grant will directly support Spaulding’s residential program.
Spaulding Youth Center’s Residential Program focuses on therapeutically supporting children while fostering the fundamental philosophies of a family unit. The grant presented by People’s United Community Foundation will support Spaulding’s goals of providing comfortable, welcoming and home-like environment for its residential students. Funds from this grant will help to cover the cost of new furnishings in three common areas of one of the organization’s five residential cottages.
“The generous support of People’s United Community Foundation will make an incredible impact in the lives of the children living on campus,” said Susan C. Ryan, President & CEO of Spaulding Youth Center. “Funding for this type of need can be difficult to come by and providing our children with a restful and relaxing common area to unwind after a school day is an important part of our residential students’ daily routines. At a time in life where these kids can be at their most vulnerable, providing them with a comfortable place to live shows them they are important, cared for and loved. We are truly grateful for People’s United’s support.”
