OSSINING, N.Y. — The Park Early Childhood Center in Ossining officially thanked Ginsburg Development Companies (GDC) on Thursday, Jan. 22, for the company's donation towards the building's new playground.
GDC gave $400,000 to the Ossining School District, and the playground is the first completed project from those funds.
School officials, parents and students attended the ceremony, where Ossining Board of Education President Bill Kress gave GDC founder Martin Ginsburg a certificate of appreciation in the school library.
Park Principal Carrieann Sipos felt the new playground was great for students, meeting their physical and health needs. “We love the slides,” she said, “especially the fast slide.” Superintendent of Schools Raymond Sanchez added that Park students “are loving the new playground. And when they smile, we smile.”
“We are very proud to help one of the most outstanding school districts in the region. This donation to the School District and others we have made to the Village are part of our ongoing commitment to investing in the communities where we build our developments,” said Ginsburg.
On top of the $400,000 donation, GDC has donated $600,000 to the Village of Ossining for downtown improvements.
