Naples, Fl (February 3, 2022) Youth Haven, Inc. is pleased to announce they’re a recipient of a $25,000 grant from Arthrex Charitable Giving Program.
The grant will provide funding for Youth Haven’s general operations. Operational expenses continue to rise with the increased cost of caring for each child/teen on its 15.5-acre therapeutic campus while continually dealing with the effects of ongoing costs accruing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The grant will also support our enrichment activities, providing us the opportunity to purchase a variety of materials and supplies to be used by the children on campus, such as art supplies, athletic and fitness equipment, and gardening materials. It will also support indoor activities such as reading, movies and cooking classes and fund off-campus outings such as visits to amusement parks, the movies, sporting games and more!
“Youth Haven is grateful for Arthrex Charitable Giving Program’s generosity,” said Linda Goldfield, Youth Haven’s Executive Director. “Arthrex is dedicated to giving back to the local community, and we are honored to be a recipient of their giving. With their support, we can continue to provide exemplary care to our children and teens and enhance our enrichment program, a crucial component of our organization.”
