I received an email from Lea Rosenberg of the Davis Odd Fellows saying that we were going to be the recipients of their “Breakfast with Santa” fundraiser during the 2011 holiday season. When I arrived at the Odd Fellows Hall on Feb. 22, Lea graciously provided an introduction of Progress Ranch to the membership, and a check was presented to me.
Progress Ranch provides group home care to boys under 12 years of age who have been unable to make it in foster family care. We have moved from the Binning Tract to Oak Avenue in 1976 to the Fifth Street location and the Loyola Drive house in 1981. Now, Progress Ranch will finally acquire the Loyola site and achieve the permanency that the agency has been seeking for its six young clients.
The board and staff of Progress Ranch applaud the Odd Fellows and the Davis community for collaborating and partnering with our agency since its inception and in the successful fundraiser, the 2011 holiday appeal letter.
