CP Rochester

We were happy to return to CP Rochester to present Grant funds for their Family Dental Center. The Dental Center serves individuals with intellectual, developmental and/or physical disabilities, older adults, and the socio-economically disadvantaged. Many patients require extended appointment times or shorter, more frequent appointments to successfully complete services for which Medicaid and Medicare do not fully reimburse the Center.

Make A Wish of Suffolk County

We were thrilled to present Grant funds to Make-A-Wish Suffolk County, NY. Our Grant funds will be used to support their program of granting wishes to children between the ages of 2 ½ and 18 with critical illnesses. These wishes provide children with more than just a great experience. Granting a wish helps children feel stronger, empowered to take back control of their lives and more willing to comply with difficult treatments. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.

Virtual reality gaming has been utilized by the VA and has shown to be an effective treatment for PTSD with certain groups of veterans. Stack UP promoted online communication, which enhances the quality and quality of communication. This leads to greater closeness and intimacy.
