The Rotary Club of McLean and its Foundation presented a generous $2,000 grant to the Children’s Center at its March 1 meeting in support of special services for children with developmental delays.
“We are very grateful to members of the Rotary Club of McLean for their contribution and that will give 17 children the special help they need to overcome issues that are interfering with their ability to learn,” said Kathy Banks, Children’s Center executive director.
The grant will make it possible for the Center to provide speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and behavioral counseling to the greater numbers of children who need services this year.
“The Club’s investment in these children will have a life-long, positive impact, increasing their likelihood of achieving academic success, financial independence and satisfying lives.
“They will have a greater chance of becoming contributors to our community one day,” Banks said, “because of the services you’ve made possible for them today.”
