MISSOULA- Some much needed help is on the way to the Watson Children's Shelter.
Executive Director Fran Albrecht says they've been given a $10,000 grant from the Liberty Mutual Foundation, which will be used to help the non-profit continue "to welcome over 100 children annually in need of a safe nurturing home due to abuse, neglect, abandonment or family crisis."
"As we care for more children than ever, this grant from Liberty Mutual Foundation is timely and significant, as it supports our ability to provide for every precious child who walks through our door," Albrecht said in a news release.
The grant was one of $1 million dollars in grants distributed to non-profit organizations as part of Liberty Mutual Insurance's 100th anniversary celebration and Watson Children's Shelter was the only Montana recipient.
"I commend Liberty Mutual Foundation for celebrating and bolstering the longstanding commitment the wonderful employees at Liberty Mutual have for the children at Watson Children's Shelter." said Albrecht.
