Grant Recipients

The NNY 2021-2022 grant was awarded to St. Lawrence Central Middle School in Brasher Falls, NY. St. Lawrence Central Middle school will be opening a new classroom for children with Autism in the Fall of 2022. Since this will be the first year of existence for this beautiful classroom, we could not find a more deserving recipient. The funds were used to purchase furniture, dividers, educational programs, sensory equipment and much more. Thank you for all you do, keep up the good work!
