San Manuel makes donation to rehab hospital

The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has donated $20,000 to Casa Colina Hospital’s children’s services center.

The donation will help provide treatment for children and teenagers with physical and developmental disabilities, according to a statement.

Usually, those treated come from families that are underinsured.

“We are grateful for the ongoing support of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, particularly during a year when funding priorities have shifted so dramatically due to Covid-19,” said Michele Alaniz, director of the services center, in the statement.

“These funds will help us provide early intervention services to these at-risk children at a critical time in their development, giving them the greatest chance to build the social-emotional, cognitive, and self-help skills that will improve quality of life for them and their families.”

The children’s services center at the Pomona hospital has helped nearly 700 children during the past year, according to the statement.
