Grateful to The Arnold Cogswell Health Fund

December 23, 2019

Crossroads Center for Children is deeply grateful to The Arnold Cogswell Health Fund of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region.

Thanks to a grant from The Arnold Cogswell Health Fund of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region, our Healthy Food Program can keep giving children at Crossroads the opportunities they need to develop the particular healthy eating skills they need.

This is our first Arnold Cogswell Health Fund grant, and we’re so proud to be included in their giving activities. As stated on The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region website, “The major goal of this Fund is to make grants to facilitate the development of improved health care in the Capital Region.”

Located in Albany, The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region manages many funds and grant-giving options. Crossroads is delighted and proud to have the ongoing support of the foundation, which, over the years has distributed grants through different funds to Crossroads on several occasions.

The Healthy Food Program is aimed at helping our students children tolerate new and healthy foods, an important area to address with the children who attend the school and their particular needs. The grant will allow the school to purchase foods and ingredients for recipes that the students can make and try within their classrooms. The children learn about food nutrition, sources, and preparation through the program. Since being started in 2013, the program has run on funding received from grants and donations.

As enrollment at the school continues to grow, more and more students are benefiting from the program. Further, more and more students are in need of it. We’re excited to head into 2020 with a grant from The Arnold Cogswell Health Fund on behalf of our children’s Healthy Food and Nutrition Development programming.
