HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -
The Greater PineBelt Community Foundation hosted a press conference Thursday morning to announce a $20,000 grant disbursement to William Carey University.
The grant is named through the Ann Morris Memorial Fund, which according to the Greater PineBelt Community Foundation, “was created to help local organizations enrich the lives of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities”.
The university will use the funds to help two William Carey University programs that enrich the lives of those with intellectual disabilities.
Those programs are, the “Quality of Life” program, and the “Harnessing Adults’ Full Potential Through Music Therapy” program.
