CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) – The Salvation Army today announced that it received a grant in the amount of $25,000 from the Henry G., Henry F., and Louise Tuechter Dornette Foundation, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee. The funds will be used in support of The Salvation Army Learning Center, located at the West Side Community Center in Price Hill.
The Salvation Army Learning Center serves children from 3 months to 12 years of age in a one-of-a-kind facility in the Price Hill neighborhood. The facility provides full-time infant day care, the only such offering in the area. The center also serves school-age children, with both before- and after-school activities to provide mentorship, recreation and development.
"We are delighted to receive these funds from the Dornette foundation," stated Major Ronald Foreman, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army. "We believe strongly in the value of our Learning Center, as it provides a safe and nurturing environment where youth have wonderful opportunities that foster academic achievement and positive personal growth."
Added Nicole Robinson, director of the Learning Center: "At a time when low-income families face additional hardships, our ability to offer this program is an important part of our presence in the community. The support of the Dornette Foundation helps The Salvation Army greatly in its work on behalf of disadvantaged children."
