Loeb Charitable Trust Donates $10,000 to Whaley Children’s Center

The Stella & Frederick Loeb Charitable Trust, which is administered by Citizens Bank Wealth Management, now part of FirstMerit Private Bank, has committed a $10,000 donation to Whaley Children’s Center. The sponsorship elevates the Loeb Trust to the Benefactor level for 2013.

“For years, the contributions from the Loeb Charitable Trust have gone to programs that enrich and strengthen our local community,” Katrina Khouri, Director of Development at Whaley Children’s Center, said. “Their donation will benefit all of our children and allow us to continue our mission of healing close to 80 children each year.”

A donation of $10,000 will help provide one year of therapeutic support for one child who has survived abuse and neglect. In addition, a portion of the money will go toward the expenses necessary for Whaley Children’s Center’s major fundraising events throughout the year—The Tux & Tennies Gala and Auction, The Whaley Golf Classic and The World’s Greatest Office Party.

Whaley Children’s Center is an independent, 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization  founded in 1926 that provides residential child care services to children age 5- 17 years old who have suffered chronic and profound abuse and neglect. The services provided to children and families include residential treatment, group homes, and family counseling and aftercare service.  To learn more about Whaley Children’s Center, visit www.whaleychildren.org.
