We have been blessed by your support of the Theresa Foundation for over 20 years, enabling us to support this exciting project at Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau (CP Nassau) in Roosevelt, NY.
As you know, our children with special needs cannot go to just any playground, nor can their families afford adaptive recreational equipment for their yards.
One of the great joys of Theresa’s life was movement. She loved to play and enjoyed the swings and slides… they brought joy to her smiling face. There are many like Theresa who need your help.
In response to this need, the Theresa Foundation has accepted the challenge of renovating the playground at CP Nassau and maintaining it for five years. Our goal was to raise $100,000 – our LARGEST undertaking up to that date. We met and surpassed this goal! As the years went on and hundreds of children experienced the joy of this playground, time took it’s toll and the playground was in dire need of renovations and repair.
With the help of supporters like you, we were able to grant $125,000 in 2017 towards the much-needed revitalization of this playground. Theresa’s Fun Place is now able to once again serve 240 children on a daily basis with a brand-new, state-of-the-art, fully adaptive playground!
Every pledge or donation you made towards Theresa’s Fun Place will go directly towards maintaining this important treasure. We share the mission of serving children with special needs with love and pride, and ask you to join forces with us to continue to make “THERESA’S FUN PLACE” accessible for all children!
