DEAN & MARGARET LESHER FOUNDATION AWARDS $25,000 GRANT TO CHOICE IN AGING
Pleasant Hill, CA (May 1, 2018) The Dean & Margaret Lesher Foundation recently awarded Choice in Aging a $25,000 capital grant to build the first “Ageless Playground” in Contra Costa County at their center in Pleasant Hill. The groundbreaking concept will benefit Choice in Aging and Choice in Learning Montessori, and allow both groups to exercise, play and stay fit alongside each other on state of the art equipment. “We would like this playground to serve as a model for how we design outdoor spaces, and to shift how we think and plan our communities to be all age inclusive,” stated CEO Debbie Toth.
“The Lesher Foundation is pleased to partner with Choice in Aging to invest in the new ageless playground. It’s wonderful to see Choice in Aging expanding intergenerational programming in our community,” enthused Lesher Executive Director Melissa Stafford Jones.
