As a community, we all want a city free of violence. And we all have one thing in common- love for our children and the children of our community. The Mary Nelson Youth Center continues to seek new ways to keep our kids involved in safe and enriching activities. 

The open lot next to the Mary Nelson Youth Center is available, and I have proposed building an outdoor area with dedicated basketball and tennis courts. The project is estimated to cost $12,000. If we can get 1,200 residents of our community to each donate $1.00. 

Donations are now being accepted. To help fund this project, make checks payable to Mary Nelson's Youth Day Foundation and mail to: SEFCU Federal Credit Union, 401 S. Salina St., Syracuse, N.Y. 13202. And or you can donate using PAYPAL 
Thanks to everyone for your continued support. Your efforts make this community a better place for our children.
