WE CARE Fund Grant!
Deanne M Caputo, Esq. Co -Chair of the Nassau County Bar Association WE CARE fund, presented a grant to Marc Kluger, Coordinator of Residential Services and Guardianship from the Nassau Cerebral Palsy Guardianship Corporation in December of 2021. This grant is presented to those offering guardianship services to developmentally disabled individuals who have no family to advocate for their needs and who do not have the resources to otherwise obtain guardianship services. Cerebral Palsy of Nassau County is extremely appreciative of this grant.
The WE CARE Fund is the nationally-recognized charitable arm of the Nassau County Bar Association. Founded in 1988 by NCBA Past President Stephen Gassman, WE CARE funds are raised by the legal profession and the community at large. The money is distributed through charitable grants to improve the quality of life for children, the elderly, and others in need throughout Nassau County. Nurtured by the tireless efforts of lawyers and judges, the WE CARE program has matured into a nationally recognized model for similar programs instituted by other bar groups. With the financial support and personal effort of so many, WE CARE has been able to serve the community in a myriad of ways.
The Al Felmet Achievement Award, presented by the Cerebral Palsy Association of New York state, recognizes a person who has cerebral palsy and has set a standard of determination and success that we can all aspire to achieve.
The students and staff at the Children’s Learning Center at CP Nassau enjoyed a fun Halloween!
We recently visited Queens County Farm where many of the day-habbers were able to purchase pumpkins to take home!
