JWL President Andrea Boccard, JJWL Chair Genoeffa Brady, and JWL Secretary & VP of Membership Liz Leeds attended the Townwide Fund‘s Annual 2022 Harvest Night on September 29th to accept a $3,000 grant benefitting the Charitable Children’s Fund.
The Townwide Fund of Huntington awarded its highest-ever amount of grants this season, supporting non-profit organization programs throughout the Town of Huntington with over $181,000 in grants. The $3,000 awarded to our Charitable Children Fund will have a tremendous impact on children throughout the Township.
About the Charitable Children Fund:
Charitable Children Fund was recently established as an outgrowth of one of the League’s initial core programs, the Lift Fund. The Charitable Children Fund is a junior and more informal version of our Lift Fund but still provides necessary and immediate small-scale resources to a child or teen in time of need.
Typical applicants are children from low-income families. Charitable Children Fund requests may range from a 8-year-old needing a new pair of eyeglasses to a high school senior requesting a tux rental in order to attend his prom, to a teen seeking help with co-pays for psychiatric health services.
