Making a Difference in Our Own Small Part of the World

Vantage Travel is a proud sponsor of the Henry R. Lewis Foundation, a charitable organization seeking to make a difference in the lives of children, who through no fault of their own, need a healthy environment in which to grow. The Henry R. Lewis Foundation supports organizations that provide safe havens, skills training, and intervention for teens at risk, while at the same time, providing opportunities, educational and otherwise, that would not be available to them.

Since its inception approximately 10 years ago, the Henry R. Lewis Foundation has raised approximately $7 million to benefit the West End House Boys and Girls Club of Allston/Brighton, Massachusetts. The West End House has been providing uninterrupted support, hope, and opportunity to young people in the Boston area since 1906.

The Henry R. Lewis Foundation - along with its sponsor, Vantage Deluxe World Travel, is proud to have raised the necessary funds for the expansion and improvement of West End House facilities.

The West End House Boys and Girls Club is an award-winning social and recreational facility that has helped over 2,000 youth each year (before its expansion). With programs that range from sports leagues, swimming lessons, tutoring, arts and crafts, climbing, and more, the West End House provides a safe and appealing alternative to the streets for countless individuals. The children of this Club are from all walks of life - representing different races, ages, and family situations. For these children, the facilities and programs of the West End House are often an oasis of stability, security, and new possibilities. Vantage greatly appreciates any contributions to the West End House from our travelers and extended family. Donations can be made online by going to www.westendhouse.org.

The Henry R. Lewis Foundation

The Henry R. Lewis Foundation has successfully helped the West End House continue its mission to "inspire and enable youth from all backgrounds to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens."

The Henry R. Lewis Foundation - along with its sponsor, Vantage Travel, is proud to have raised the necessary funds for the expansion and improvement of West End House facilities. In 2002, the Club opened the new Lewis/Gordon Building - a 38,000 square foot facility accommodating 2,000 children and 250 adult members on a full-time basis.

The building helps meet the expanding needs of the Club and the community by providing a larger learning center, a new technology lab, a new teen center, upgraded pool and gymnasium, and much more. In addition, the new Lewis Gordon Building features a kids' café - a facility that provides free hot meals daily to children who are not afforded the luxury of three square meals at home. The number of meals served annually is in excess of 85,000!

This project has received unanimous praise from the Allston community and from the City of Boston. Vantage is proud to support this project and the youth of the West End House. It's just one way that Vantage is working to make our community, and our world, a better place.
