Doug Krinsky, Founder of Ante4autism, along with Georgia Backus, former Executive Director of The Rich Center, presented a check for $27,593.
Proceeds of the endowment, held at the Youngstown State University Foundation, will be used to support cultural and educational activities for parents and families of currently-enrolled or formerly-enrolled Rich Center students as well as the installation of a parent resource room at The Center.
“Doug and Georgia continue to be advocates for children on the autism spectrum. This donation enables us to sustain our mission and provide much needed support to students and families,” said Interim Executive Director Mike Latessa.
