Flood Relief Disaster Fund Launched to Help Childcare Centers

Posted By Cindy Bishop, Checkmate Strategies, Friday, August 26, 2016

Flood Disaster Relief Fund


What a disaster, the Louisiana Flood of 2016.   Preliminary estimates show that over 100,000 Louisianans have been displaced, and so many have lost practically everything.  As we work to rebuild, one of our most critical industries needs your help. Child care is frequently overlooked in disaster relief, but we know that parents must have a safe place for their child in order to return to work.  The Louisiana Department of Education, the agency now responsible for child care in our state, along with Save the Children is surveying child care businesses to gauge the extent of damage.  As of August 25, over 60 child care centers reported that they were damaged and cannot reopen at this time --- which means almost 5000 fewer child care spaces for our children.  And, there are still centers we haven’t heard from, meaning that the lost capacity will likely increase. 

We can restore child care but we need your help.  With your donation, our child care businesses can reopen and return to their work of providing quality care and education for our youngest citizens.  Please consider donating to the Child Care Association of Louisiana --- 100% of your gift will be dedicated to helping child care centers and their staff restore operations.  We are the industry association for child care and have over 1500 members across the state.  We know that you share our belief that there is nothing more important than the future of our children.  Thank you for helping the families and children of our state.

 

Donations can be made by check payable to the Childcare Association of Louisiana and mailed to P.O. Box 80053, Baton Rouge, LA 70898-0053 or electronically via credit card on our secure website portal at www.childcarelouisiana.org

 

We are optimistic that your tax-deductible donations will make a tremendous impact in helping our early learning centers to get back to their mission of providing high quality early childhood education to our most precious asset: Children!
