A generous $7,000 donation from the Magic Valley Employee Community Fund will help heal hearts of parents and children in the Valley.
Children’s Bereavement Center Rio Grande Valley offers grief counseling services for grieving children, youth, their families and the community. The center began offering direct services, including peer support groups and individual counseling, in early 2017. Peer support groups are the heart of the healing process at the Center and designed to help children and families develop the relationships and tools needed to cope with a significant death loss.
“Our goal is to help children, adolescents and their caregivers understand the depth of their grief,” said Randall Baker, Regional Director for Children’s Bereavement Center Rio Grande Valley, “We want to help them preserve family relationships and help them develop healthy coping skills after the death of a loved one.”
“At MVEC, helping children and their families is very close to our hearts, so it’s an honor to help an organization whose purpose is to help heal the hearts of children and their families during their darkest hours,” said John W. Herrera, MVEC’s General Manager
The Magic Valley Employee Community Fund was created by a group of MVEC employees who wanted to do more for our community. Since 2011, MVEC employees have raised over $150,000 to help local non-profit organizations in the Valley.
