How a community came together to GIVE LEARNING to a special school.

December 11, 2017

Results are in from Giving Tuesday / NY Gives Day and our Annual Campaign!

Many people helped and we received lots of support. Now our results are in! Here’s how the generosity of our community came together to GIVE LEARNING to a special school.

Whether from responses to our annual campaign letters, the campaign that we launched on for Learning Without Tears curriculum supplies or donations made simply because people wanted to contribute to an appeal to give learning on Giving Tuesday/ NY Gives Day….

We’re delighted to share that this year, many people helped generously, and we raised $2,400! Contributors were given the choice of having their donation go to the Learning Without Tears curriculum or to Crossroads Center for Children’s overall mission. In both choices, donors are putting their money to give learning and education to students in need.

Taken together with two grants that were written specifically for the Learning Without Tears curriculum, one from Price Chopper’s Golub Foundation and the other from the MAXIMUS Foundation, and which came in during this time frame, we are able to put together an order to purchase Learning Without Tears supplies. We’ll be able to purchase all of the items that we listed in our campaign this year, with the exception of the teach training.
