UM Pediatrics’ Debbie School Receives $35,000 Donation
The Department of Pediatrics’ Debbie School at the Mailman Center for Child Development received a generous $35,000 donation to help put the finishing touches on the dream playground school volunteers built last summer with the Kaboom! organization. The check was presented May 20 by Jackson Memorial Foundation’s Sharon Fallick, director of development, and Joan Bender, vice president of development.
Debbie School faculty, staff and students were elated to receive the donation for the installation of an artificial grass surface, which will make the 2,500-square-foot play area even safer for kids with disabilities.
