Siskin Children's Institute recently received a $10,000 grant from Truist Foundation to assist in COVID-19 protection and sanitation procedures.
"We're excited to receive the grant from Truist Foundation," Derek Bullard, president and CEO of Siskin Children's Institute, said. "The funding is vital in our efforts to enhance safety and mitigation processes to protect the children and families we serve, including the refinement of telehealth services."
Siskin Children's Institute will use the money to protect patients, students, families, and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. Truist Foundation's support will allow the Institute to improve sanitation processes in the medical clinic, therapy spaces and early learning center. The funding will also be used to enhance telehealth services.
"We're proud to support such an important organization in our Chattanooga community," Jim Vaughn, Chattanooga market president at Truist, said on behalf of the Truist Foundation. "At Truist, we live and breathe with our purpose, and that is to inspire and build better lives and communities."
