Diane Murphy, ESCCF Chair, said, “the Board is thrilled with this gift. We can now address the serious mold problems in the Activity Center – both in the gym and other rooms. The mold issue was discovered in March and we have spent much time and funds removing moldy walls and debris.” She continues, “mold remediation is costly but essential before opening any part of the facility. Finally, we can approach the problem comprehensively and professionally.”
The $50,000 Windgate Grant is a Challenge Grant. ESSCF must match these funds with local donations.
The resulting $100,000 will enable the Board will remove all mold from the Activity Center, remodel the Activity Center lobby and lobby restrooms, begin preparations for the fitness center, gathering lounge, and meeting rooms.
“The Windgate Challenge is our opportunity to take a giant step forward in opening the Activity Center. Join me in contributing, I love the idea of doubling my donation plus all donations are tax-deductible.” Jean Elderwind, ESSCF board member, shares.
