6 Health Care Projects for Children Get Grants
Centinela Health Care Foundation has awarded $1.2 million in grants to six community health care projects that benefit indigent children in Inglewood, Hawthorne and Lennox.
The nonprofit health care foundation awarded the $200,000 grants to the Freeman Hospitals Foundation to establish a plastic surgery unit at Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital for children and the Inglewood Unified School District for the expansion of its school nurse program. The Children’s Dental Center also received funds.
The CaliforniaKids Program, a preventive health care facility, and the Charles Drew University of Science, which operates a family medicine clinic at Daniel Freeman, received money to continue their operations. Robert F. Kennedy Medical Center in Hawthorne received a grant to establish a mobile van project to transport indigent children to its facilities.
“In awarding this money to these exceptional projects, we believe we will have a positive influence on the health care needs of the community,” said William Miller, president of the Centinela foundation.
