Foundation donates to Children’s Rehab

HOWLAND – The board of directors of the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation recently presented the Children’s Rehabilitation Center with $30,000 to support the services of the center.

The center serves almost 1,000 children from birth to age 18 with numerous programs and activities, including various therapies, social, and educational services.

“Children’s Rehabilitation Center is blessed to have the trust and support of the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation. With the receipt of this grant, we look forward to continuing the center’s mission of providing high quality, uninterrupted pediatric care to medically fragile and disabled children throughout the Mahoning Valley,” said Robert Foster, executive director of the CRC.

Marissa Murphy, director of donor services, Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, said the TMHF funds, previously restricted to the support of Trumbull Memorial Hospital, are now used to support a broad range of healthcare services and healthcare education needs of Trumbull County residents.

The Wilber Pediatric Care Fund was repurposed and approved by Probate Court to support the mission of the Children’s Rehabilitation Center.

“We are extremely excited to assist the Children’s Rehabilitation Center at a time when financial support is so critical. More so, it’s about helping children who aren’t in a position to help themselves,” said David Kostolansky, chairman of the TMHF board of trustees.
