Thom Anne Sullivan Early Childhood Programs, Lowell
This year we purchased a heavy-duty play mat for one child who is working on weight bearing and pulling to stand with his physical therapist, and a trampoline recommended by an Occupational therapist for another child. We also ordered feeding and sensory materials that families can use on an everyday basis. We also purchased therapeutic items to lend to families, such as ankle weights, tumzees for tummy time and balance cushions. For our swim/aquatic therapy program, we were able to purchase puddle jumpers and for our parent infant playgroup we bought a long wall mirror. This donation means so much to the children and families whose early intervention experience and daily lives are enhanced by the therapeutic materials. And the staff members are so appreciative of the additional resources to share with families.

Without the generosity of CJ’s Fund, we wouldn’t be able to offer this benefit to families as readily. We’re so grateful to you both, to your families & friends & all who donate in your dear little one’s name to make these kind of small miracles happen! Our Team feels strongly that the love you held for CJ just keeps continuing outward in many positive and caring ways. We’re so grateful to you and all of CJ’s loving supporters – they’ve touched so many – across the state…thanks again for thinking of those children who are in need of Early Intervention – CJ’s Fund has made such a difference in so many young lives.
