Thrive by Five Giving Day – April 25, 2018

Pre-K Kids in Classroom

Join The Celebration! Help Monroe County Kids Thrive by Age Five!

On April 25, we joined together with superheroes in our community to give children the tools they need to succeed in school and in life with this special day to raise $100,000 for high-quality early childhood education initiatives. We’re pleased to share that this goal was met and exceeded! Lots of great photos were also posted on Giving Day. You can see them by searching the #thriveby5 hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also view our Thrive by Five Giving Day photo album on Facebook.
