Published September 18, 2014
Kelly Friend, Old Island Restoration Foundation president, presents a $2500 check to Chuck Licis, program coordinator and Steve Pribramsky, the MCEF President of Take Stock in Children.
Take Stock in Children was established in 1995 as a non-profit organization in Florida that provides a unique opportunity for deserving low-income youth/students, many from minority families, to escape the cycle of poverty through education.
Over the years, Old Island Restoration Foundation has raised and granted hundreds of thousands of dollars to maintain the Oldest House Museum and to award grants to restore historical buildings in Key West as well as provide scholarships to Take Stock in Children and Key West high school students.
All activities are funded by member contributions, the annual house tours, rental of the Oldest House’s beautiful garden for weddings and other events such as the annual Conch Shell Blowing Contest.
