In one day, the Council raised more than $22,000 to help 1,200 children! All funds will be used to purchase brain-building kits for child care providers who serve children from low income families. The kits are filled with items that are critical for early brain growth; books, math manipulatives, building blocks, art supplies, instruments, science tools, dress-up items, and more. Kids who have access to these materials are more likely to enter kindergarten ready to learn, move grade to grade on time, avoid risky behavior, graduate high school, earn good wages, and be healthy as adults.
THANK YOU to everyone who supported our campaign this year. Together, we are making a tremendous difference for Westchester's children, not just today, but for a lifetime.
