Several area childcare programs are thankful for some extra help. The organizations have been awarded grants from the Terre Haute Day Nursery Endowment Fund of the Wabash Valley Community Foundation.
More than $16,000 was awarded to seven child care programs. (see list below)
The money will be used for thinks like play areas, scholarships and heating and air conditioning.
Even though the Terre Haute Day Nursery hasn't been operating since 1997, the endowment fund was set up to continue supporting local childcare programs.
The foundation's next application cycle begins in June. Visit their website to find out how to apply.
