Area of Focus: Community economic development

Activity Type: Community Development: General

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.
