Culver City, CA, March 06, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Exceptional Children’s Foundation (ECF) is pleased to announce the award of a grant from Variety The Children’s Charity of Southern California. This grant will provide early intervention services and family support services to young children with special needs in ECF’s Early Start Program.

“ECF is grateful for the support from Variety The Children’s Charity of Southern California. This generous grant will help us to improve the lives of children from birth to three years of age with special needs so that they can work toward and achieve key developmental milestones,” said Scott Bowling, President and CEO of ECF.

The Southern California Chapter of Variety was formed in 1941, and to date, has raised over $60 million for children in Southern California.
