The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that Stanford Youth Solutions is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. Based in Sacramento, Stanford Youth Solutions is a non-profit that inspires sustainable change for young people and their families by empowering them to solve serious challenges together.
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 Coat Drive.
“We will be placing the funds directly into our Lifeline Fund,” said Carrie Johnson, Director of Development and Marketing. “Lifeline Funds help families focus on healing by meeting their basic needs. The grant will help provide food, clothing, shelter, transportation, school supplies, or social activities such as after-school programs.”
“It gives us great pride to give this grant to an organization that is involved in assisting those in need through actively engaging in our community.” said Lyon Real Estate President Pat Shea.
Each of Lyon’s 14 offices throughout Greater Sacramento will give a $5,000 grant to an organization of their choice. Lyon’s Agent Support Center chose Stanford Youth Solutions to be the recipient of their grant.
