State Senator Thomas Morahan (R-New City) and Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee (D-Suffern) will receive the Nyack Center’s Legacy Award at 6 pm Saturday at the center, 58, Depew Ave.
The duo is being honored for securing money that was used to replace a boiler and support after-school programs, among other services. The Nyack Center serves more than 2,000 people each year.
“These well-organized activities provide an extrinsic motivation for so many young people, and are of great benefit to our community,” Morahan said.
Jaffee said the Nyack Center ’s were “invaluable to our community.”
“The center provides positive activities for youth that foster academic and social growth, and a safe alternative to being on the streets,” Jaffee said. “Just walking in the doors and seeing children engaged, playing games, and studying with friends demonstrates the value the center has in our community and the impact it has and will continue to have for generations to come.â€
Kim Cross, director of the Nyack Center, said the center was “thrilled” to honor Morahan and Jaffee.
“They’ve always been there for us when we’ve needed them,” Cross said.
