In partnership with AT&T’s Investing in Illinois Awards Program, State Representative Ron Sandack (R-Downers Grove) on Tuesday presented the Ray Graham Association in Lisle and the Almost Home Kids Organization in Naperville with checks for $1,000.
AT&T’s Investing in Illinois Award provides resources and recognition to organizations and programs in Illinois that are improving lives in their communities and the state by advancing education, economic growth, new technologies and other essential community services.
The Ray Graham Association’s cash award will be used to further the organization’s mission of supporting the unique needs of people with disabilities and helping them reach, grow and achieve. The Almost Home Kids award will be used to support general operating needs, including providing transitional care in a home-like setting for children with complicated health needs, training for their families and respite care.
Both groups were nominated for the award by Representative Sandack. “We are very fortunate in this area to have organizations like the Ray Graham Association and Almost Home Kids, which empower people with disabilities and provide transitional healthcare for children with significant health needs,” said Sandack. “I appreciate AT&T’s willingness to recognize and support the good work that these organizations are doing.”
