The Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS® (HGAR), recently presented a check for $1,000 to Christopher’s Voice in New Rochelle.
Christopher’s Voice is a charitable foundation created by New Rochelle Police Detective and Bronx REALTOR® Christopher Greco, along with his wife, Tracy. Christopher’s Voice helps prevent wandering of autistic children; provides financial assistance and support to struggling families with autistic children; and promotes public awareness, training and safety within the first responder community. The charity is named for their son, Christopher, who is now 13 but remains non-verbal.
“We are very humbled and appreciative of this very generous donation during a very difficult time,” said Greco of Richard Greco Real Estate. “We will be sure to distribute it to those families impacted by autism that need it the most.”
The organization supplies free GPS and other search and rescue equipment to families with autistic children. It also offers recreational activities focused on autistic children and helps families financially by defraying the costs of unreimbursed medical equipment, home and child care.
In addition, Christopher’s Voice financially supports legal advocacy to protect the legal rights of autistic children as well as provide grants to special education classrooms for essential equipment.
Since 2014, the Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profits throughout the Hudson Valley. As concerned members of the communities they work in, the Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation participates in qualified community-based charities who serve the housing, hunger, health, happiness and humane needs of citizens everywhere.
