The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that Wind Youth Services is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. Wind Youth Services is a local charity that provides homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 12 and 24 with basic safety net and survival services, a safe place to stay, and access to on-going support services.
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 donations by Lyon agents and staff throughout the year in addition to Lyon’s annual Charity Golf Tournament.
Each of Lyon’s 14 offices throughout Greater Sacramento will give a $5,000 grant to an organization of their choice in 2016. Lyon’s Downtown office chose Wind Youth Services to be the recipient of their grant.
“Wind Youth Services is honored to receive ongoing support from the Lyon Cares Foundation,” said Scott Gregory, Board of Directors member. “Community partners like Lyon Real Estate help us so that we can continue to provide housing and survival necessities to homeless youth in our community.”
Lyon’s Downtown office has been a long-time supporter of Wind Youth Services, providing three cash grants over the past 12 months totaling $15,000.
“It gives us great pride to be able to provide positive change in the lives of the individuals that Wind Youth Services helps through the Lyon Cares Foundation,” said Lyon Real Estate president Pat Shea.
