MLK Center Afterschool program receives York Children's Foundation grant for art therapy
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center was awarded a grant from the York Children's Foundation, via its relationship with local business Memorial Funeral Home. The funding will be used for the Center's new art therapy program in its Afterschool and Summer Camp.
Memorial Funeral Home Director Chris Edenbach presented the check to MLK Executive Director Marilyn Warren. Grief Support Facilitator Maria Rege joined John Martin of the York Chidlren's Foundation at the presentation, along with MLK Case Manager Stephanie Luther.
"We're very grateful to Memorial Funeral Home to helping us secure this funding, and to the York Chidlren's Foundation for providing the funds to create this innovative program to allow the Center's children to explore their emotions through art," said Warren.
Since 1922, the MLK Community Center has provided nutritional, educational, social and referral services to persons of all ages and cultures in Newport County.
