Arc of Yates Awarded Grant

The Arc of Yates received a grant in the amount of $3,000 from the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning.  The grant will allow the Agency to continue to develop its Greenspace Project, construction of which began earlier this year.  The two acre parcel, adjacent to the facilities 235 program center, was purchased in 2014 to complete flood mitigation and is being cleared to create a wheelchair accessible cinder trail.  Additional plans include construction of a bridge, additional trails and natural enhancements.  The woodlands are located in the middle of the village and will be usable for the community at large. 


Individuals interested in supporting the project should contact Terry Freeman at 315-536-7447 ext. 196.  In addition to monetary donations, in-kind donations of stone, benches and animal shelters are welcome.
