The Galowich Family YMCA was honored to receive a $2,500 donation from the Crane Fund for Widows and Children last Friday ahead of our summer camp picnic.
Parker Schmitt, Plant Manager, and Michael Burns, Director of Environmental Health and Safety, of Crane Composites were on site to present the gift, which will provide scholarships for children and families at the Y, helping make programs and membership accessible for all, regardless of the ability to pay.
Crane Composites, located in Channahon, has transformed its plumbing business origins into a global company specializing in the manufacturing of engineered materials for aerospace and other industries.
The Crane Fund for Widows and Children was founded as a charitable trust in 1914. Annually, employees at Crane Composites locations around the country award grants to local agencies serving the needy and disadvantaged.
We thank Crane for this kind gift and the role it will play in our mission to provide opportunities for members of the community.
