On October 31, 2016, the Macomb Infant Preschool Program (MIPP) and Glen H. Peters School, serving a combined total of over 1,000 students with special needs ages 3-26 in Macomb County, each received a $1,000 grant from Jamie’s Smiles. These grants are to purchase core strength and stability enhancement devices, communication development products, fine and gross motor skills and sensory input ability enhancement items, seating devices and alternatives for posture development as well as learning toys, to be used on site at their locations and as short-term loan equipment for families to use for child development and in-home teaching.
When asked about their projects Gretchen Bates said, “These grants make a real, life changing difference in the lives of children like our son. We applaud the hard working folks that are in the homes and lives of such amazing children and are proud to be even a small part of the efforts of organizations such as the Macomb Infant Preschool Program (MIPP) and Glen Peters School by supplementing their budgets with money to positively and directly impact the lives of children with special needs.”
