Educare Arizona Groundbreaking! Fall Update

On Thursday, September 16th, Educare Arizona broke ground in a packed ceremony (despite the hot weather) -- donors, stakeholders, neighbors, and a troupe of our littlest MVPs were on hand as Steve and members of the Ounce of Prevention and Bounce Learning Network initiative spoke to the importance of investing in quality early learning.

Donating to high-quality early learning programs like Educare Arizona is a sound investment, recognized and supported by business leaders across the country, including Susie Buffett, Bill Gates, J.B. Pritzker, George Kaiser, and Nobel Prize-winning economist James Heckman. When we address the needs of children early, we plan for sustainable, productive growth in our communities.
