Woo Lane Residential Services will beautify its properties using a donation from CSX.
CSX team members presented a $5,000 check to CEO Jessica Miller-Blakely in a ceremony held Friday at WLRS in Bowling Green.
Rusty Orben, director of state relations for CSX, said the donation was a way to engage in the community.
CSX has facilities in North Baltimore and Walbridge.
“The services you provide here are remarkable,” he said.
WLRS provides residential housing options to individuals with developmental disabilities throughout Wood County. WLRS owns 35 different homes in Bowling Green, Portage, Walbridge and Perrysburg and offers adult day programming, employment and transportation services at its site on Poe Road.
“We are fortunate and blessed that we have such strong community support,” said Miller-Blakely.
The donation will be used for lawn and garden improvements, fixing existing fencing, ramps and decks, as well as driveway improvements.
Sen. Theresa Gavarone said she appreciated the good work of Wood Lane Residential Services.
“You’re just so interwoven in the community,” she said to Miller-Blakely.
