Siskin Children’s Institute announced the generous donation of $12,000 by the Chattanooga Civitan Club for the renovation of two classrooms at the Institute’s Early Learning Center in downtown Chattanooga.
The funds will help the Institute complete a necessary project to upgrade two of the 11 classrooms. These classrooms provide learning, engagement, therapy and socialization opportunities for young children.
Each summer, the Institute must replace carpet, vinyl flooring and paint to prepare for the upcoming school year. The classrooms set to be renovated using the Civitan Club gift are places where three- and four-year-old children with disabilities and their typically developing peers learn and play together. The classroom setting also serves as the site for integrated therapies for many of the children with special needs.
The Chattanooga Civitan Club has been supporting children and families at the Institute for almost a decade.
