Heartwarming Experience

I had a wonderful time doing a learning lab with the children at CELC! I also felt it was an eye-opening experience seeing everything the teachers and center directors are doing for these children. CELC is serving such a great need in our community. I am so grateful for the chance to help, and hope to volunteer again very soon.

Can't wait to go again

Our family had a great time today at the Early Learning Center on Broad. We were going to finish the outdoor fencing but due to weather we worked inside doing fall cleaning in each of the rooms. The staff is incredible and had everything ready to go for us. They got super bonus points from the 13yo for having donuts he could munch on. We will definitely sign up for future ELC events!
