Thursday, July 27, 2017
UR Medicine | Noyes Health’s Mental Health and Wellness Services will receive a $988 “mini grant” from Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester (RMHCR) to fund the purchase of play therapy dollhouses and a sand table. The “mini grant” is part of the organization’s Community Grant program, which supports projects and programs that improve the physical and behavioral health of children in Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Ontario and Wayne counties.
“We thank the Ronald McDonald House Charities grant making committee for understanding how valuable these tools are,” says Dr. Robert Whelpley, director of Noyes Mental Health and Wellness Services. “These therapy toys will help our youngest clients express themselves and work through whatever is bothering them in a non-threatening and comforting way with our staff. A mini grant can make a big difference!”
