Mountain Valley Receives Major Grant from the Emily Landecker Foundation in Support of Fitness Center Renovation
Mountain Valley is pleased to announce the receipt of a significant grant from the Emily Landecker Foundation. This generous support, earmarked for fitness programming, was received by Mountain Valley this spring and will be used to renovate and equip an existing space in MVTC’s Gallup House.
The Landecker Foundation was incorporated in 2004, awarding grants to not for profit organizations engaged in charitable, scientific, literary, educational or other exempt purposes located in the Upper Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont.
“How fortunate, and proud, we are to have received such a generous grant from The Landecker Foundation.” remarked Carl Lovejoy, Mountain Valley’s Associate Executive Director for Communications and Development. “Thanks to their support, the all-important fitness experience for our residents – and staff – will be that much more vibrant and impactful going forward.”
Through our fitness and therapeutic recreation offerings, Mountain Valley seeks to challenge our residents to partake in activities featuring incremental challenges that they normally might be reluctant to pursue due to their anxiety and avoidant tendencies.
MVTC is blessed to be situated on a magnificent 25-acre campus, allowing residents to participate in a host of outdoor activities, from mountain biking on our trails to canoeing on the Connecticut River. And since MVTC is located in beautiful New Hampshire – known for its cold, snowy winters and sometimes muddy springs – the residents are not always able to engage in outside programming, making The Landecker Foundation’s generous gift even more impactful and allowing us to use the challenges of “outdoor therapy” to reinforce the goals of “indoor therapy.”
Unique in so many ways, the not for profit Mountain Valley Treatment Center revels in, and benefits from, receiving the support of foundations, parents, grandparents and friends. We are grateful to all those who choose to make MVTC a part of their charitable giving each year.
