WESTERLY — The Frank Olean Center received a $2,000 grant from the Andrade-Faxon Charities for Children to purchase paint and canvases for local developmentally and intellectually disabled children receiving services from the center. The supplies will be used as part of the center’s art therapy curriculum.
Jason Lanzillo, director of children’s services, expressed gratitude for the generous grant.
"We are so thankful for the support of Andrade-Faxon Charities for Children," he said. "With the help of this grant we will be able to continue providing in-home activities based around artistic expression. As home-based services have become drastically affected by the COVID-19 crisis, we are making a major push to increase in-home activities that are fun, therapeutic and lasting."
