Charter One Realty donated $15,000 thousand dollars to Osprey Village on Thursday. There will also be job training and other life skill resources offered.
"Obviously we need money to get this thing going and get this project going because we're trying to develop this neighborhood that will empower adults with developmental disabilities to empower their own lives which is what we should all be about but really in a broader sense this donation is important because it shows this is a community effort," said Channing Heiss, a Board Member of Osprey Village.
The donation will go toward a truck to help support the Osprey Village Thrift Store in Bluffton.
Osprey Village representatives hope to begin construction in 2017. The non-profit organization has been working on this project for the last eight years.
