In 2010 and 2011, Lafarge was a Gold sponsor of $2,500 each year to the Mayor’s Gala supporting Pelham’s Youth.
This event funds various youth focused projects within Pelham to allow youth to participate in a variety of events.
The 2010 event raised funds for Konnecting Kids, a wonderful community program which provides recreational and
cultural opportunities for less fortunate kids in Pelham.
The 2011 event supported five different youth focused projects by:
- Providing funds for the Pelham Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council to host youth focused events like
an Open Air movie night,
- Sponsoring a new E.L. Crossley High School gymnasium score clock,
- Sending a Pelham Army Cadet to participate in the 90th Anniversary of Vimy Ridge in 2012,
- Providing the 1st North Pelham Scouts with much-needed new tents, and
- Helping to fund the new “Pride of Pelham” boat for the E.L. Crossley Rowing Club.
