Our Foundation & Updates

Hey! At the last meeting our members voted on a foundation to fundraise for this semester. We are thrilled with the results. The winner was Trinity Child Development Center! Our members have volunteered with this organization before and had such a great time.

“The Mission of TCDC is to provide quality, affordable early care and education to children within our economically and ethnically diverse community. We strive to provide stability and support to the children in our care and to their families, so that together we can truly impact future generations.”

A great coincidence in choosing this foundation is that this is their 50th anniversary to be in operation helping the children of Austin, Texas.

“We envision a world where young children are given priority by the adult community around them and where families of all economic circumstances have equal access to quality early care and education for their young children.”
