We are pleased to be able to award a total of $10,825 to four Child Care Centers for tuition support and facility upgrades.
We received 11 applications for our initial round of funding. Asks included, a playset to improve outdoor play, assistance for purchasing supplies, and the bulk of the asks were for tuition support for their families who were not eligible for state assistance.
We are pleased to announce the four recipients:
- Emmanuel Lutheran Child Care Center: $3,125 to provide 5 partial scholarships
- Kitsap Child Care &Pre-School: $5,000 for new flooring in classroom & playground bark
- Martha & Mary Kids: $1,500 to provide 3 partial scholarships
- Peacock Family Services: $1,200 to provide 2 partial scholarships
We know these dollars are just a small drop in the bucket, but are grateful to our donors for their support that makes these investments in our future leaders possible. Giving all kids a strong start helps them to Graduate Strong. This is how we’ll win the fight for the education, health, and financial stability for everyone in Kitsap County.
