Our Farm & Wildlife Center is home to over 300 farm animals, permanently injured or imprinted wildlife and horses. The main purpose for each animal’s presence is to thrive in the care at Green Chimneys and play a supportive role in educational and animal-assisted therapy for children with special needs. By sponsoring an animal, you are directly supporting the daily care for our most popular teachers—our animals! Give a gift,

NEWS_Gosselink-Arche-de-Triumph_Dec-2015.jpgFor over a decade, Stefani Gosselink has created magnificent gingerbread structures as part of a holiday luncheon for W.R. Berkley Corp. employees. This year's creation, a holiday replica of the Arc de Triomphe, was auctioned off at the party for $9,500 and also matched by the W.R. Berkley Foundation. And for the sixth consecutive year, Green Chimneys has been the recipient of this generous (and sweet!) donation. The combined gift of $19,000 will benefit Green Chimneys programs for children and animals.

The Arc de Triomphe is making its way to Green Chimneys today where it will be on display in our dining hall for students, residents and staff to admire. Special thanks to Stefani and Robert Gosselink and W.R. Berkley Corp. for choosing to include Green Chimneys in their holidays for the sixth consecutive year!
