The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that Sacramento Children’s Home is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. The mission of the Sacramento Children’s Home is to open doors to the future by maximizing the potential of children and families.
Operated by Lyon Real Estate, the Lyon Cares Foundation offers time, talent, and treasure to local nonprofits that make their communities a better place. Funds are raised through escrow and payroll contributions by Lyon agents and staff in addition to Lyon’s annual Golf Tournament.
“We are so appreciative of Lyon Real Estate and the generosity of their entire team serving the Sacramento region,” said Todd Koolakian, Director of Philanthropy for the Sacramento Children’s Home. “These funds will directly support the mission of our Crisis Nursery Program to prevent child abuse and neglect by providing support to families at times of crisis.”
“It gives us great pride to give this grant to Sacramento Children’s Home,” said Lyon Real Estate president Pat Shea. “They are doing very important work.”
In 2018, each of Lyon’s 14 offices, in addition to their headquarters office will be giving two $5,000 grants to organizations of their choice, totaling $150,000. Lyon’s Agent Support Center chose Sacramento Children’s Home to be the recipient of their grant.
