The Junior League of Northern Virginia has awarded the Children's Center a $3,000 community grant in support of our preschool's nutrition and exercise program, Healthy Me! In addition to the financial award, Junior League members will volunteer up to 50 hours at the Center teaching children about nutrition through their hands-on Kitchen Kids program. 

"We're thrilled to have the Junior League's support for one of our highest priorities, providing children with nutritious food and teaching them to make good choices for healthy eating," Lucy Pelletier, Children's Center executive director, said.  

The Junior League of Northern Virginia focuses its community grants on programs that prevent childhood obesity.
