TD Bank Does it Again

TD Bank Does it Again

Once again, Camp Venture and the Venture Foundation have found a sympathetic ear and a helping hand in their friends at TD bank. This year TD stepped up to help with Venture’s capital campaign to underwrite improvements to the Venture Center in Sparkil, New York.

The Venture Center is home to Camp Venture’s, Venture Center Day Habilitation program which provides day activities to over 100 of the Rockland community’s most vulnerable people. It also hosts the Venture Good Neighbor after school program for young adults, the Saturday Club Venture program for kids and the Vacation respite program. And, it’s the agency’s evening and weekend recreation center where people with developmental disabilities meet and discuss important issues in the agency’s self-governance project, where they play sports, swim in the pool and perform in the auditorium. For the Venture Family, it’s their place, a place which, agencies like Camp Venture are going to need to be able to support on their own in the days ahead.

Increasingly, government supports for facilities like the Venture Center are drying up and so, going forward, it’s going to take the support of community’s to keep places like the Venture Center, that are so important to special people, alive.

“TD Bank embodies the spirit of community,” explains Camp Venture Executive Director Dan Lukens. “ They are not only the kind of business partner that offers the best services and rates, they step up and help out in a big way too.” Lukens said.

Thank you TD Bank!
