MAOF is pleased to announce the receipt of a $7,500 grant from the Downey Kiwanis Club for its center-based early education programs. The grant comes at a crucial time when the 1,200 children enrolled in MAOF’s preschool programs are often using outdated tools and supplies.
The generous $7,500 grant will be used to purchase materials that enhance learning, promote social interaction, encourage play, and nurture social emotional development, replacing old supplies where needed. Read More
