BRICKS OF LOVE: PAVING THE WAY TO ALYN’S FUTURE

In February 2020, we launched a new project, Bricks of Love. Bricks of Love gives our donors the opportunity to honor friends and family or memorialize a loved one while, at the same time, leaving a lasting gift to ALYN by purchasing a paver in ALYN’s beautiful garden. We are so pleased to announce that the first group of pavers have been engraved and installed. What a meaningful way to become part of ALYN’s legacy. We invite you to learn more about Bricks of Love CLICK HERE. Questions? Please contact Deborah Rivel, deborah@alynus.org.
