A gift gratefully accepted
Shelter Island Reporter, September 1, 2016
At Town Hall on Tuesday, August 30, 2016, the Senior Citizens Foundation of Shelter Island (SCF) presented a $38,000 check to Judy Brandenstein, who had given the town a steep discount on a wheel-chair accommodating van she had designed for her late husband, Howard.
The town, short of funds, gave $2,000 toward the purchase of the van, and the foundation came up with the balance of $36,000.
According to the foundation, there are at least 12 wheelchair-bound seniors who will immediately benefit by having the van available.
