Walmart Foundation gives $32K to Children's Attention Home in Rock Hill
The Walmart Foundation presented the Children’s Attention Home in Rock Hill with a donation to support a new nutrition program.
The foundation, which has given $511,606 to South Carolina organizations so far this year, gave $32,615 to start a nutrition education and food management training program for young adults at the Children’s Attention Home, a congregate foster care agency that provides a wide variety of services for children from birth through age 21. The money will be used to launch CAH's nutrition education and food management training program for youth ages 13 to 21 at CAH. The program is one of several developmental modules designed to provide independent living skills to foster care teens transitioning to adulthood.
"We are very grateful for Walmart's generous support," said Phil Hynes, President/CEO of Children's Attention Home. "This special grant will enable us to implement a critical component of our Independent Living Program. The nutrition education and food management module is designed to empower the youth in our care with the life skills, knowledge, and confidence to establish healthy eating habits and prepare nutritious, economical meals as they transition to life outside of foster care."
