Do you recall how a nice warm mug of hot chocolate feels in your hands – the fragrance tempting your taste buds? Sometimes it is the simple things, the little things that warms our hearts the most.
Right before our center closed for the Christmas break, a group of managers from Freeman Webb properties dropped by with last-minute toys for any parents that might need a gift to put under the tree. They also had hand packed 55 individual jars of hot chocolate mix, complete with marshmallows on top! When the children were leaving for the evening, they were able to choose a jar of the hot chocolate mix. It was a simple gift, it was a little gift, but oh, did it warm their hearts! Smiles spread across their faces, eyes lit up – “hot chocolate mix for me”?!
As we prepare for Christmas morning, it is our hope at KDCDC that you will cherish the “simple things” the “little things”. Remember the baby that lay in a simple manger – a simple, humble beginning. Christmas isn’t all about the gifts you will give and receive, the decorations that you will deck your halls with. It is about the simple gift of love that was given to each of us by a little baby laid in a simple manger.
On this Giving Tuesday, please join hands with the King’s Daughters Child Development Center to provide not only needed EDUCATIONAL SUPPLIES (such as books, pencils, paper, paint, crayons, etc.), not only LOVING TEACHERS to provide guidance and support, not only EXTRA FOOD to take home for those times when the cupboards at home are bare and little tummies are hungry, and not only PARENT WORKSHOPS to help parents learn parenting skills and how to be an advocate for their child when he/she goes to school…
…but also to provide HOPE for a BRIGHTER FUTURE for the children and families we serve.
Heating our building doesn’t make a pretty picture – but the warmth you feel seeing these two adventurers get ready for their next trip to the land of imagination does! A donation of $32 heats one of our classroom for a month.
We keep our classrooms safe and clean so our children can play and learn every day. $32 covers one week of maintenance costs per classroom. Please consider giving today to King’s Daughters at http://www.kdcdc.org/make-a-donation and be part of the national movement of giving today! #GivingTuesday
What joy music brings! Classroom supplies (like scarves, dress up costumes, and CDs) are essential to meaningful play. Provide a week’s worth of classroom supplies to our children with a donation of $29. Be apart of #GivingTuesday and donate at http://www.kdcdc.org/make-a-donation today!
