Bob Talham, Inc. Presents Unity House with Major Gift for ‘Making Child Care Affordable Initiative
Bob Talham, Inc., a Troy-based paving, construction and excavation company, recently donated $20,000 and a car to Unity House’s “Making Child Care Affordable Initiative” as part of the Major Gifts Campaign for the Working Poor.
The gift will be used to help Unity House families with child care expenses. After housing, safe and reliable child care is the largest contributing factor impacting a person’s ability to maintain steady employment. On average, the support needed per family is $500 a month. The Making Child Care Affordable Initiative will help Unity House bridge the difference for working families who earn too much for a child care subsidy but can’t afford the full cost of day care.
