The Stella & Frederick Loeb Charitable Trust, which is administered by FirstMerit PrivateBank, granted $10,000 to Whaley Children’s Center in January 2014. The sponsorship elevates the Loeb Trust to the Benefactor of the Center this year.
“We are grateful to have FirstMerit and the Loeb Charitable as partners yet again this year. The Loeb Charitable Trust has continually supported the treatment programs and services that Whaley provides to children across Michigan who are survivors of abuse,” said Katrina Khouri, Director of Development at Whaley Children’s Center.
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.
