PACCC's Auction is Coming!
Opens Thursday, November 2nd at 8:00am!
Beginning Thursday, November 2, 2017 Palo Alto Community Child Care (PACCC) will offer a number of fun and unique items to bid on! All proceeds support PACCC's Family Partnership Program, which provides a safe and enriching environment for children and enables parents to pursue educational, professional and personal goals.
As part of PACCC's mission to provide accessible care and education to our community's children, we operate the Family Partnership Program which serves the early care and education needs of 100 - 150 low income children in our community each year. Through the Family Partnership Program PACCC manages city and state subsidies to provide child care to low income, working families. The state funding we receive covers less than half the actual cost of care. PACCC must find ways to raise a remaining $500,000 per year to support this vital service to the community.
Research shows the critical importance of early education, and the significant impact it has on a child's linguistic, cognitive, social, and emotional development. PACCC's Family Partnership Program promotes optimal child development and family well-being, values diversity and creates a place for all to belong. It fosters boundless life skills for the children and enhances their abilities to build trusting relationships, be self-supportive and learn & play in a safe environment. It breaks the cycle of poverty by offering families a more self-sufficient future.
PACCC's Executive Director, Lisa Rock says "There is no greater time than now to focus our collective efforts on doing good work that benefits the whole community." Your participation is an invaluable part of our fundraising efforts!"
