NEW WINDSOR, NY – Approximately 240 supporters attended Independent Living, Inc.’s 9th annual fundraising breakfast on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 at Anthony’s Pier 9 in New Windsor, NY. The theme was “Promoting Independence, Transforming Lives”.
The breakfast event provided an excellent opportunity to increase community awareness regarding disability issues and the work that Independent Living, Inc. is doing to address the barriers encountered by people with disabilities of all ages that prevent their full participation at work, school and in the community. Testimonials were provided by two individuals who spoke about their experiences working with Independent Living’s staff, and how our services assisted them in gaining or maintaining their independence.
Breakfast sponsors included Rhinebeck Bank, Ulster Savings Bank, Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union, M&T Bank, Mid-Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union, D&D Mailing Services, Inc., McGowan Art Works, and Sharon “Jellybean” Warantz.
