The Spano Family Foundation donated a 250,000 W solar shipment to a hospital in Haiti after the earthquake in 2010. The hospital now has the energy it requires to take care of a quarter million remote villagers. Subsequently, due to Hurricane Mathew, part of the system was lost and is now being replaced by the Spano Family Foundation
An air conditioned therapy center with a full size gym in conjunction with a school for people with disabilities was developed in Baja California by The Spano Family Foundation.
The Spano Family Charitable Foundation donated 4 acre tract, valued at $1.2 million, the largest donation to the Cerebral Palsy Association of New Jersey, also known as Advancing Opportunities. The property was developed into 12 approved lots, of which 2 will be used to house people with disabilities and the remaining 10 lots sold to pay for the 2 group homes. After the project is complete, services will be provided to support individuals with disabilities to live relatively independently, which without the right housing opportunities would not be possible.
