Mill Foundation Awards $10K Grant to Mission

Rockford Rescue Mission has received a $10,000 grant from the Mill Foundation to help enrich the lives of children in our shelter and long-term programs.

The money will be used to provide experiences such as museum fees, theater tickets, park attractions and also various types of programs like art therapy or horse therapy.

The grant was one of 11 announced this week by the foundation, meaning $120,000 was awarded to local charities that work with at-risk youth.

The Mill Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that provides funding to those programs and organizations that benefit the Rockford region’s disadvantaged youth, ultimately giving them the values, behaviors and life skills that will lead to responsible and productive lives.
