How To Give Back To our Local Community: It’s that time of year again, where we gather with friends and loved ones and reflect on all that we’re grateful for. Millions of Americans will travel this holiday season to visit loved ones and feast together for Thanksgiving, but millions of other Americans will also be struggling without homes or food. In the spirit of helping others, Americans celebrate “Giving Tuesday” every Tuesday after Thanksgiving to share the love with those less fortunate than us. There are so many worthy charities to lend a hand to this time of year, but one in King of Prussia that we like helping out is the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation. Dedicated to making America better by improving early care and education, their role is to enhance the lives of children and child care teachers and providers in the child care community, and to heighten the awareness of the public to the need and definition of quality child care. They support nonprofit, nonsectarian childcare programs dedicated to excellence and raises awareness of the critical role high-quality early care and education plays in commerce and society. The TLLCCF’s funds have directly benefited thousands of children, program providers and students studying early care and education.
