The Cherry Hill-based Kennedy Health System announced Friday it had received a $12,500 grant from Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region.

The grant will pay for equipment, furnishings and sensory toys for the comfort room in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Unit at Kennedy University Hospital, the health system said in a news release.

The comfort room, dubbed the “CHILL Zone,” helps with therapy for children who have increased anxiety or agitation.
