David Ormsby, Chairman of the Friends of Nathaniel Witherell, Inc., announced today that the Friends has helped obtain a $4.49 million State of Connecticut historic income tax credit to offset the construction costs of Project Renew, the project to modernize and refurbish The Nathaniel Witherell, the highly regarded, short-term rehabilitation and long-term nursing care center owned by the Town of Greenwich.
“This brings the total to over $9 million that the Friends has raised from generous private citizens, foundations, and public sources to date,” Mr. Ormsby reported. “By facilitating this historic tax credit, we are helping to insure that Nathaniel Witherell can continue its 112-year tradition of serving our community’s needs and assisting our Town's most vulnerable elderly residents.”
