WYOMING, Mich.--  Five nonprofit organizations supporting children are getting a financial boost.

The Grand Rapids Jaycees Foundation recently awarded more than $13,000 to Roosevelt Park Ministries, Autism Support of Kent County, Kendall Continuing Studies, Mary Free Bed Wheelchair and Adaptive Sports and West Michigan Center for Arts and Technology.

Roosevelt Park Ministries plans to use the $5,000 it was awarded for career camps for children ages 12-17.  The four week-long camps will take place in summer and highlight the importance of graduating from high school and pursuing higher education.

Autism Support of Kent County will use its $2,520 grant for Project Lifesaver, providing transmitters/locator units  which will be worn by autistic individuals who may wander off.

Kendal Continuing Series is getting $2,120 for cameras and other equipment needed for its summer day camps with children.

Mary Free Bed Wheelchair and Adaptive Sports will use its $2,000 grants for two sets of shot clocks used during tournaments.

 

And the West Michigan Center for Arts and Technology’s $1,500 grant will go toward video production lab equipment for its Teen Arts program, primarily supporting  students who attend Grand Rapids Public Schools.
