Berkowitz Hanna Charitable Fund is pleased to announce that it has recently granted $7,000.00 to the Bartlett Arboretum’s Silver Education Programs. These youth education programs include funding full scholarships for low-income children and children living at Inspirica (a homeless shelter in Stamford, CT) for an 8-week summer camp; an elementary school-aged program (Plant Life Cycle) which runs from September through June where every second-grade student visits the arboretum to learn about seed dispersal, pollination and flowering plants (held outside and in the Silver Education Classroom) including the visits in the schools as well. This donation to the Youth Education Programs will also support 52% of public school students in Stamford that are on the free and reduced lunch program.
