This holiday season, The Child Center is overwhelmed with the generosity and good will of people who created special moments for our children and families.
World Cares Center‘s Project Elf brought Santa and presents to our after-school participants at Beach 41st Cornerstone Community Center. World Cares Center, an organization focused on empowering communities through disaster response training and coordination, came to The Child Center bearing gifts for over 100 children. The night before the gift-giving, they transformed the gym with decorations, pictures of presents, snowflakes and streamers. On December 8, children and parents came through the doors and were greeted by Santa Claus, fun art activities, and gifts.
The Child Center is excited to announce that we are now an official KidCents charity! KidCents is a program created by The Rite Aid Foundation that allows Rite Aid customers to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar and donate their change to help support kid-focused charities.
If you are a Rite Aid customer, you’ll be able to list The Child Center as your designated charity, and then elect to round up your Rite Aid purchases to the nearest dollar and donate the change to support our work.
