Feb. 9, 2012 - PRLog -- New York, NY, February 9th, 2012—New York furniture manufacturer Gothic Cabinet Craft (http://gothiccabinetcraft.com/) announces today that they will be supplying the home office furniture for the new Wizard’s Corner pilot program. The Wizard’s Corner pilot program is underwritten by a $250,000 grant from Olmstead Properties’ Joseph Rosenblatt made to the Mayor’s Fund, and will provide desks, lamps and chairs to eligible children ages 5 to 11 in New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) developments in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn to help create their own personal space at home where they can study, read, and complete school and homework assignments.

“Mr. Rosenblatt clearly recognizes that our city’s young students face many challenges, and providing them with tools that enhance their study environment will give these youth a leg up on success,” said Mayor’s Fund President Megan Sheekey. “We are pleased to partner with NYCHA on this creative program and raise additional support to even further increase the program’s reach.”  

The Wizard’s Corner program will provide eligible elementary school children, ages 5 to 11, with up to $250 of basic equipment to help them develop self-discipline, good study habits, and effective time management skills. Wizard’s Corner will launch in three community centers in NYCHA developments—Williamsburg Houses, Independence Towers, and Taylor-Wythe Houses. The program expects to serve 400 children in its first year of operation.

Eligible children will receive a home office furniture set that includes a desk, lamp and chair for their at-home use. Desks and chairs will be purchased from Gothic Cabinet Craft, and the furniture maker will deliver the already-assembled furniture to the developments for families to pick up.

Aristidis Zaharopoulos, President of Gothic Cabinet Craft, says “Gothic Cabinet Craft is honored that we are able to give back to the community that we have been a part of for so long. Being able to give these kids their own space where they can focus on their school work is such a great idea and we are very proud to be a part of this program from the beginning.”

The pilot program will run from January 2012 to June 2012, and will resume at the beginning of the school year in September 2012 and run through the completion of the school year in June 2013.  NYCHA is working with the Mayor’s Fund to secure additional private support to sustain the Wizard’s Corner program. To donate, please contact the Mayor’s Fund at (212) 788-7794 or go to www.nyc.gov/fund.
