Help us fix Silverman Way!
Silverman Way, the access road to the Adaptive Sports Center, is over 10 years old. The trip up to the Center can best be described as a bone-rattling off-road excursion. The road is rutted and potholed and the volunteers, ASF families and staff, find the degree of difficulty increases with each successive weather change. The road is a mixture of dirt and stone and unfortunately the wear and tear of shuttle buses, deep freezes and then dramatic thaws, one hurricane and drainage changes due to construction above the Center, has left the current state of the road in disrepair. The condition of the road has become unacceptable. We need to rip up the existing road and start over with a new drainage and new materials that can stand up to the harsh conditions here during the winter.
Taken together, these factors indicate it is time for a major reconstruction project to take place. We need to rip up the existing road and start over with a new drainage system and new materials that can stand up to Windham’s harsh winter conditions.
This project will cost upwards of $150,000. We have received a very generous $50,000 challenge grant from the Meringoff Family Foundation, but for us to receive the grant, we must first match their offer by raising $50,000.
We hope you will consider donating to the Silverman Way Road Repair fund. Every donation, big or small, will move us one step closer to the goal of beginning construction this spring.
