NATICK, MA April 15, 2015 – On April 13, 2015, the Framingham Union Aid Association (FUAA) grants $1,500 to RCS Learning Center, for the third year in a row. This year, their donation will help RCS purchase additional supplies needed in the Nurse’s office.
The FUAA was founded in 1892, by a group of individuals who volunteered to perform various tasks at the Framingham Union hospital. Since then, the FUAA has been a Non-Profit Organization that serves the Metrowest towns of Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Marlborough, Medway, Millis, Natick, Sherborn, Southborough, Sudbury, and Wayland. It is the mission of the FUAA to help aid health-related projects in the Metrowest area. Approximately 30 grants are awarded per year, more than $1.25 million dollars. RCS Learning Center happened to be fortunate enough to receive one of these grants.
“We are extremely grateful to have been the recipient of this grant for the third time and that the Framingham Union Aid Association continues to support our mission and be so involved in our community,” said Jennifer Rutland, a member of the Executive Team at RCS Learning Center.
“In addition to Autism, many of our students have a variety of complex diagnoses ranging from diabetes to seizure disorders. This grant has helped RCS purchase an AED as well as additional manikins to be used for our state mandated CPR and First Aid trainings. The safety and health of our students is our highest priority and it brings a great deal of comfort knowing we have the additional resources available to continue to provide high quality trainings to all of our staff, so they have the skills and resources necessary in the event of a medical emergency,” said Jennifer.
Thank you to the FUAA for your continued investment in our organization and our kids.
