The MDRT Foundation has awarded a $5,000 grant, in honor of Easter Seals NH Board Member Richard Rawlings (Bedford, NH), to the Easter Seals NH Child Development Centers in Manchester, NH, that serve more than 250 low-income and minority infants, toddlers and pre-school children with disabilities and special needs, enabling them to realize their potential.
Through its global grants programs, the MDRT Foundation is committed to building stronger families and communities around the globe. This year, the MDRT Foundation will award nearly $1 million in MDRT member-endorsed grants to more than 100 charitable organizations worldwide.
