Thank You Alliance Data!

Today we’re thankful for our friends at Alliance Data.

They provided amazing support when ChildCareGroup needed them most! Not only have they committed to supporting our programs long-term by adopting Anderson ChildCareGroup Center, but they went even farther! When they heard that our Bock ChildCareGroup Center had a flood this summer after sprinkler pipes burst, Alliance Data generously contributed $10,000 to help pay for repair expenses not covered by insurance.

We appreciate all your financial and volunteer support, Alliance Data! 

THANK YOU!


Happy Holidays!

December 22, 2011

Here at ChildCareGroup, the holidays are definitely happy. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends in the community. Here are just a few examples…

……………………………………………………………………………………………

ANDERSON
CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER

Alliance Data officially adopted our Anderson Child Development Center and hosted a holiday party. CLICK HERE to view pictures. We are so thankful for companies who invest in our centers long-term. (Find out more about our Adopt-a-Center Program.)

 

LANDAUER
CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER

Santa Claus made an appearance at our Landauer Child Development Center! Each child received a new stuffed animal, donated by Nationwide associates (distributed by United Way of Metropolitan Dallas), as well as adorable new pajamas donated by the Dallas Woman’s Forum.

The children were excited to see Santa!

    

Nap time with the new stuffed animals AND new pajamas.

 

BOCK
CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER

Ernst & Young volunteers came to our Bock Child Development Center and did some much needed yard work. Thanks for making Bock a welcoming place this holiday season!

In addition, the Highland Park HiLite Group adopted each child and purchased gifts from their holiday wish lists.

 

MLK
CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER

Our MLK Child Development Center was thrilled to get a donation from Montgomery Coscia Greilich LLP to purchase toys! A parent dressed as Santa Claus and passed them out to the children.

Children in Room 6 decided it was better to give this holiday season. They conducted a food drive and donated items to the S.M. Wright Foundation. What a sweet reminder that this season is about giving, rather than receiving!

 

UMC
CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER 

 Parent participation is something we value and highly encourage at our child development centers. During the holidays at UMC, we had several outstanding parent volunteers. We cannot thank them enough!

Maria worked hard to collect toys for the children.

Mr. and Mrs. Murillo each contributed to the festivities. Elizabeth planned the holiday program and Sandro dressed as Santa Claus for the occasion!  

 

TOY DONATIONS

Thanks to some very generous groups, we were able to give a toy to every child at our Centers.

Dallas Academy Student Council

Motion Industries, Inc.

Rebel Rousers Dance Club 

 

THANK YOU!
Without the kindness of the people listed above, we could not have provided these special gifts and activities for our children.

Happy holidays from all of us at ChildCareGroup!
