The Kenny Rogers Children’s Center has provided occupational, physical and speech therapy to children in Sikeston, Missouri for the past 40 years.

Recently, the center underwent a 7,000 square foot expansion, which allowed for the addition of a Motion Analysis Lab. In addition, the center received a $500,000 grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health, which will help the facility to continue to serve more than 350 children up to the age of 21, at no charge to the families.

“I am thrilled by the support that the Kenny Rogers Children’s Center continues to receive, and I think this grant speaks to the level of quality the staff has achieved. I am so proud to be associated with this center and the community,” Rogers says. “The center continues to provide such a wonderful service for families, at no cost to them.”

The Country Music Hall of Fame member adds that he will do his own part to make sure the center continues to thrive. “In an effort to keep it all going, I will be coming back to Sikeston in 2014 for a fundraising event,” Rogers adds. “I hope to see you all there.”

The center became the Kenny Rogers Children’s Center in 2000, in honor of the 75-year-old’s many generous contributions. To donate to the worthwhile cause, click here.
