Summary: Help with renovations and repairs for the furnace in the Chicago Lithuanian Youth Center
Built in 1958, The Chicago Lithuanian Center served as a home for refugee Lithuanians to teach their heritage to the future generations and preserve the Lithuanian culture. It is also a nonprofit organization. The Chicago Lithuanian Center serves not only emigrant Lithuanian community of Chicago's South Side, but also the extended Latin American community. The Center houses Lithuanian Cultural School of Chicago, Research and Studies Center archives and Ciurlionis Art Gallery. It is located in Chicago, IL.
Currently the entire furnace needs to be replaced. We would like to put our district funding of $1,081 (Matched by us for $1,119) toward the replacement and repairs. This will benefit the community and the children that are part of the cultural school as heat is a necessity. The Lithuanian Center also houses important historical archives and art that need proper conditions. The timeline for the project is to begin in June 2020 and finish in September 2020.
This project is "Paid". This means that the funds from the district have been issued. This project is now being ready for implementation. When this is done, a report needs to be uploaded on the project page and the "Reported" button needs to be clicked, then the status of the project will be changed to "Reported".
Project listed for the 2020-21 Rotary Year.
