The ArcelorMittal grant was devoted to updating equipment and creating a child-friendly environment for young and adolescent victims of abuse and their non-offending family members. A team from the company visited the CRC on Thursday to tour the facility and present some of the equipment purchased by the grant. David Wirick, General Manager, ArcelorMittal Steelton, stated:
"At ArcelorMittal, the health and safety of our employees is our top priority, and this commitment extends into the communities where we operate. We are pleased to support the Children's Resource Center's work to protect the safety and wellbeing of children in Steelton and throughout the state. I commend the CRC and its staff for the important work they do to help children who are victims of abuse and to educate others about preventing abuse."
In her response, CRC Coordinator Teresa Smith, thanked the company for the gift noting that the Resource Center’s mission aligns with ArcelorMittal's goal to work toward providing a safe environment for disadvantaged youth.
