Donations Make a Difference for Children at Kurn Hattin
Every donation makes a difference in the lives of children and their families at Kurn Hattin Homes. We are very grateful for the many people who support the children through generous donations. Private and corporate gifts, along with foundation grants, make it possible to care for, house, educate, and provide a variety of opportunities to thousands of children.
Recently, Kurn Hattin received a generous grant from the TD Charitable Foundation to help with costs associated with housing the children. The TD Charitable Foundation is committed tosupporting, respecting and improving the quality of life in the diverse communities in which TD Bank serves. This $5,000 grant will be used to provide the children with cottage and student hygiene supplies, furnishings, utilities, maintenance, and building insurance.
Kurn Hattin also received a generous grant from the Claremont Savings Bank Foundation towards upgrading to our school safety measures. The Claremont Savings Bank Foundation makes grants one time each year to local non-profits that significantly enhance the quality of life and economic vitality in the communities that they serve. This $2,200 grant will assist the Kurn Hattin School in implementing a video surveillance system for school safety.
The Kurn Hattin Homes’ Adopt-a-Cottage program affords donors to not only support the special items needed in the residences at the Homes, but also spend quality time with the children who live there.
