Yes! You can give a child the chance to can avoid a “learning gap” and start school ready to learn.
You don’t have to be a world leader or a billionaire to change the world. Today, #Giving Tuesday, is about ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things.
Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center was started by ordinary, local people who believed all parents should have a safe place for their children while they worked. And all children should have a chance to build a strong foundation of skills they need to be successful in school.
Did you know that young children growing up in poverty usually have skills that are at least a full year to 18 months behind levels expected for their age?
You have the power to change the course of a young child’s life — toward academic success, financial self-sufficiency, and fulfillment. Your gift of $10, $50, $100, $500 or more will give young children the books, art supplies, nutritious food, and field trips to build their critical language, math, physical and social skills.
Make a gift today and forward this message to a friend to help the Center compound your gift by earning prizes through the Catalogue for Philanthropy, the directory of small nonprofits selected as worthy of supporting for their vital services.
Then reward yourself and your family with a celebratory Lunch or Dinner at Plaka Grill, 513 W Broad St., Falls Church. 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. Eat in or Take Out, Plaka will donate 15% of your tab to the Children’s Center in honor of #GivingTuesday. Bring or Show this Flyer at the checkout. You deserve it!
