An individual contributor has offered to donate $25,000 to Wyndham Lawn Home for Children, 6395 Old Niagara Road, if Wyndham Lawn can obtain $75,000 from other sources by Dec. 31.
The Lockport Ladies Relief Society founded Wyndham Lawn in 1871 as the Lockport Home for the Friendless. Its first residents were widows and orphans of persons killed in the Civil War.
Wyndham Lawn today serves Western New York children and families who have emotional problems or learning disabilities and those who have been abused. More than 10,000 children have received services since it was founded.
