MERS Goodwill has received a $10,000 grant from the Dana Brown Charitable Trust, which it will use to purchase equipment and supplies for the Imagination Learning Center. The center provides child daycare services to clients participating in MERS Goodwill rehabilitation programs, MERS Goodwill staff, and to families living or working in the downtown St. Louis area. The Center’s mission is to provide children with comprehensive education to facilitate cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and linguistic development.
“We are so grateful for the generous support from the Dana Brown Charitable Trust,” said Lewis C. Chartock, President and CEO of MERS Goodwill. “This grant will enable us to provide our community’s children with tools that foster both education and creativity. We know the importance of providing children from all backgrounds with a positive, caring, and safe learning environment, and this donation will help ensure our cause.”
The Imagination Learning Center is committed to developing a safe and nurturing environment that promotes family involvement and participation. The Center offers daycare programs for infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers ages 6 weeks to 7 years old.
