Grand Island, NY – The Miracle League of Grand Island and WNY, Inc. is closer to realizing the dream of a handicapped accessible playground at the Miracle League baseball complex in Veteran’s Park of Grand Island.
It was announced today that the Miracle League of Grand Island & WNY is the recipient of a very generous grant from an anonymous donor. This morning, members of the Board of Directors accepted a $60,000 grant to be used towards the construction of the playground – a disability-friendly play area, purpose-built to accommodate all children.
In addition to the immediate grant, a matching challenge has also been made. If monies raised by the Miracle League from now through April 2014 can reach the $25,000 amount, a $25,000 matching grant will be donated by this anonymous donor. Your donations will support the organization’s needs for the 2014 season and beyond.
Today’s donations, combined with the generous contributions of all supporters and the substantial earnings from the Summer Carnival will allow ground breaking for the construction of the planned playground to begin in the Spring of 2014.
With your support, the Miracle League organization can do great things – all donations to the Miracle League are gratefully accepted – with heartfelt appreciation. You can make a donation by pay pal or credit card on the website, or by mail at the address below. Help be a part of the construction of this special needs playground; your donation will be enhanced by the challenge grant announced today. Please note, when making the donation online at the donations page, simply select the Playground as the project to help at the bottom of the form.
ML is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization; contributions made directly to the ML are tax deductible. Donations made through Pay Pal do not qualify.
