CCCR faces an urgent need. Following Hurricane Irma, one of our four early learning centers, Child’s Path, needs a complete roof replacement. The total cost of a new roof is approximately $111,000. Unfortunately, insurance has denied our claim because of the depreciated value of an older roof. This cost is in addition to over $150,000 in hurricane losses in 2017.
As of mid-April 2018, we have raised $89,340 due to the incredible generosity of our donors. We can not thank you enough! Currently, we are only $22, 280 away from our goal. Can you help us to reach it? Any size donation helps.
There are signs of leaking on the ceiling of every room where our children play and learn. If we are unable to replace the roof before the rainy season, heavy rain will likely make the damage much worse. Mold could grow and potentially displace 85 children in our care.
We provide partial tuition assistance to over 75% of children at all CCCR Child Development Centers. At Child’s Path, 70 families receive this assistance for child care costs. In all likelihood, these families will not be able to afford childcare elsewhere. For these families, sacrificing two weeks of income to watch their children would be devastating, almost irrecoverable.
We have a company that will begin replacing the roof soon, however, more funds still need to be raised. Our goal is to raise the last $22,000 by May 31st. It is through the kindness and generosity of people like you that we can continue to care for these children and support these families.
Let’s Raise the Roof!
