Community residents from throughout the community provided taped and live testimonials in support of the center. Center employees, instructors and board members also spoke about their experiences, as well as upcoming events at the Center.
“We are so grateful to WSBS for their support during the radiothon, and to the community for their continued support during our campaign,” commented Executive Director Jenise Lucey.
To date, the organization has raised $24,989.20 toward its fundraising goal. In addition, all new and increased donations are being matched by an anonymous donor.
