October 06, 2004

$250,000 GIFT. The Worcester County Commissioners recently gave $250,000 to the Wor-Wic Community College Three-Way Challenge Campaign to assist with the operation of an on-campus child care center at the college. The new center is expected to open in the fall of 2005. Pictured during the check presentation, from left to right, are Michael Guerrieri, a member of the campaign steering committee, serving as chairman of the fund-raising effort in Worcester County; Marty Neat, president and CEO of the First Shore Federal Savings and Loan Association and chairman of the steering committee for the campaign; Louise L. Gulyas, a Worcester County Commissioner and liaison from the commission to Wor-Wic's board of trustees; and Thomas A. Cetola and Judy Boggs of Berlin, members of the Worcester County Commissioners. The donation will be matched with $250,000 of a $500,000 challenge pledge from the Henson Foundation. The Wor-Wic Foundation is accepting one-time nursing, technology and child care gifts as well as pledges for payments that can be made over the next four years.
