Savannah Cornelius from the Junior Service League of Bay City recently presented a $2,000 check to the Texana Learning Center at Bay City’s Manager; Dora Casarez.
This could not have come at a better time, as the Texana Learning Center has relocated to a building on Avenue F in Bay City and plans to purchase a new stove for the center’s kitchen; this will be used for cooking and baking activities involving Texana’s adult clients with intellectual disabilities. The center also intends to purchase educational materials for a collaboration which is being developed with Bay City ISD.
The Bay City Junior service League was founded in 1959 by a group of ladies who decided the best way to make a difference in their community was by working together. This tradition continues today through volunteering and raising funds for local non-profit organizations and Texana Center is one of those 501(c)3 organizations.
Texana is having an event to ‘Spotlight Abilities’ at the new Learning Center on Thursday, March 24, 2016 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM and welcome the community to visit and see the difference we can make in the lives of adults with intellectual disabilities. Texana works with many local employers to support clients with intellectual disabilities in their workplace, we also help the clients become more independent by teaching skills at the Learning Center and preparing them for a job in the community.
