Stamford Elks #899 utilizes Gratitude Grant
By Nancy Seeley - CEA Coastal District Public Relations Chair
Stamford Elks #899 works with Backyard Humanitarian to kick off a fundraiser with a $1000 donation from the Grand Lodge Gratitude Grant to help James Lacerenza who needs a Nurse's Aide to help him with his daily living needs. James is from Stamford who in 2005, at age 18, founded ConnectiKids Summer Camp Fund to send children with any of the 40 different types of Muscular Dystrophy to camp and has dedicated his life to helping others. He has raised over $120,000 to help kids with Muscular Dystrophy, so they can enjoy life. James was born on March 17th, 1987 11 weeks premature. He has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair. He put himself through college, helps others and asks for nothing for himself.
James has faced many challenges, pain and heartache but always maintains a positive attitude and disposition. PER Lynda Roscia mentions "Unless we can help James like he's helped others he will have to wait years and will suffer in the meantime".
