Give Horace a Lift

After many years of faithful service, our elevator has stopped working and will need a complete overhaul and update to make it operational. We have always welcomed our Seniors, neighbors with disabilities, and families with strollers to the Horace Greeley House, all of whom are dependent upon our elevator.

The price tag to put the elevator back in use is $65,000. We need your help now. Would you consider donating $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more to help ensure that the Horace Greeley House can be enjoyed by the whole community?
