Keystone Executive Director Valerie S. Williams used the example of a client who received money from the initiative.
After getting a twin bed set with a headboard, chair, television stand, kitchen cookware and cleaning supplies, Williams said the client told her 'I love my new bed and so happy that I don’t have to sleep in a chair anymore.'
This is the third year in a row that the Foundation has awarded Keystone a grant towards the organization's initiatives and services.
