Osborn Residents Raise Funds for Ukrainian Relief Efforts

Members of The Osborn’s Sterling Park Independent Living community came together this month to support the people of Ukraine, raising more than $25,000 to help with humanitarian relief efforts.

The fundraising effort was spearheaded by Mrs. Barbara Ward, a resident of The Osborn. “I didn’t want to just sit around after the invasion. I wanted to do something to help make a difference in the lives of those affected by this terrible war,” she said. “I want to thank the residents — I asked and they responded and responded quickly. I am stunned by their generosity.”

According to The Osborn’s President and CEO Matthew G. Anderson, “This demonstrates our residents’ compassion for people across the global community. For more than 100 years, The Osborn has been a vital, active, and progressive part of the Rye community and beyond. This donation represents our residents’ generosity and empathy.”

Built on a tradition of charity by its founder, Miriam Osborn, the non-profit senior living community provided $3.3 million in charity care in 2021 alone. Osborn residents organized this month’s fundraising effort with the help of The Osborn Foundation, and the raised funds will be sent to CARE’s Ukraine Emergency Fund. Their goal is to reach those affected by the war with immediate aid including food, water, hygiene kits, psychosocial support, and monetary assistance — prioritizing girls, women, families, and the elderly.
