Gary and Martha Wallin of Wallin Funeral Home & Cremation, LLC presented a $1,000 grant to the Toddler Learning Center through the York Children’s Foundation. In addition, the Wallins contributed $500 to the organization.

Toddler Learning Center is a nonprofit organization committed to serving children from birth through 36 months that have a handicap or developmental delay. The center provides developmental screenings and evaluations, speech and motor therapy and educational and parental support. Most services are provided in the home or in an inclusive classroom with peers. All services are provided at no cost to families.

The York Children’s Foundation is a nonprofit organization designed to support local child-focused charities across the United States while paying tribute to the memory of those who have passed away. Since its inception in 1992, the foundation has given more than $3.5 million to community-based children’s organizations nationwide. Every quarter, the foundation awards grants to numerous charities that were selected by local funeral homes.
