VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

“Brilliant, dedicated, compassionate” – just a few words to describe one of our wonderful volunteers, Emily O’Neal. Emily has generously donated her time to helping out as our tap dance teacher as well as an assistant during Night Watch for the past two years. Since Emily first joined our team, teachers and therapists have commented on how natural she is with our children and how much the children enjoy her as well.

ANCHOR CENTER RECEIVES GRANT
IN CELEBRATION OF NORTHERN TRUST'S
125TH ANNIVERSARY!

 

Anchor Center for Blind Children was one of only a handful of charities internationally to receive a grant in a very competitive proposal process!

The global financial services firm announced recipients of the grants designed to support education for disadvantaged young people. The funding will support causes from early childhood education to college preparation, reaching more than 140,000 students facing significant economic, intellectual and physical barriers to success.

We are very thankful to Carol Lay and Margaret Shugrue from Northern Trust's Denver office and Tony Bolazina from the Arizona office and especially Frederick H. Waddell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer​, who has been with the company since 1975.

Northern Trust first opened its doors for business in 1889. The Chicago-based global bank, established by Byron Laflin Smith, has more than 20 international locations. Founded the same year the Eiffel Tower was completed and the Dakotas, Montana and Washington became states, Northern Trust has weathered the Great Depression, two world wars and the 2008 financial crisis. The bank not only survived, but thrived during these times of significant market and economic stress.

We are very grateful for their support!
