Everyone at Lund is very grateful to the National Life Group Foundation of Montpelier, VT for a recent $20,000 gift to the 50 Joy Drive Campaign.  “The services Lund provides are critical to the well being of so many women, children and families in Vermont,” said Beth Rusnock, President of the National Life Group Foundation.  “We’re so pleased to be able to help them do even more good with those they serve.”

The goal of the 50 Joy Drive Campaign is to complete the purchase of Lund’s new building which houses the adoption department, Lund’s business and development offices, the Early Education program, New Horizons, and many other offices of treatment, education and family programs that serve the clients in the community as well as those in Lund’s residential program.    It is a hub for so much of Lund’ work and a busy place all day as people come in and out to appointments, meetings and attendance at many different programs.  The fact that the building is located on Joy Drive is not something that goes unnoticed by the employees of Lund as they work every day to provide joy to their clients or witness joy from their clients.  This latter especially true in the bright new green playground space at the back of the building!

As of April 26, a total of $1,842,000 has been committed to the Campaign, which was formally launched in March 2012.  “A $1,000,000 commitment from the Hoehl Family Foundation and a $500,000 anonymous donation represent two very significant leadership gifts,” says David Huntington, Associate Campaign Director, who works with the Campaign Steering Committee co-chaired by Melinda Moulton and TJ Donovan. Honorary Campaign Co-Chairs are Governors Howard Dean and Jim Douglas.

“We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to participate in this important effort,” says Huntington. “Personal solicitations, tours of 50 Joy Drive and direct-mail initiatives are ongoing; every gift matters.”

Thank you to everyone at the National Life Group Foundation and all those who have supported the campaign so far.
