Foundation’s new Family Fun Center receives $50K grant from PSEG Long Island

PSEG Long Island has awarded the John Theissen Children’s Foundation Family Fun Center in Wantagh with a $50,000 Main Street Revitalization grant, as well as $4,085 in rebates for its energy efficiency measures.

Theissen’s new building on Wantagh Avenue qualified for PSEG Long Island’s Main Street Revitalization grant because the project improved the economic stability and growth in the area. To date, PSEG Long Island has distributed $2 million in grants to 75 businesses and organizations under this program.

The grant supports the Fun Center Arcade Room for the nonprofit, which was founded in 1992 to help sick and underprivileged children across Long Island.

“We are so happy that PSEG Long Island is involved,” said John Theissen, founder of the John Theissen Children’s Foundation. “They put energy into our homes and businesses, and the Fun Center was created to put energy into children who are sick and need a helping hand. Creating this center would not have been possible without the support of PSEG Long Island and others who care about this cause.”

Along with PSEG Long Island’s economic development grants and programs, the Family Fun Center also qualified for more than $4,000 in energy efficiency rebates for installing LED lighting in and outside the building, helping Theissen reduce energy costs and consumption while decreasing the building’s carbon footprint.
