Children’s Learning Centers of Fairfield County’s Youth Board raised nearly $2,700 for the nonprofit early childhood education provider’s enrichment programs during a Brunswick School fundraiser in Greenwich.
A portion of the money is set to pay for field trips for CLC’s preschoolers. Trips include visits to SoundWaters in Cove Island Park, which are the culmination of a nature learning experience SoundWaters provides CLC children through its SoundKids program. The Youth Board also set aside funds for classroom technology such as cameras and printers.
“We had a lot of fun fundraising for CLC and are happy to be part of this great organization,” said President of the Youth Board and Brunswick junior Nick Mosher.
CLC’s board of directors and leadership council, along with State Sen. Carlo Leone and Stamford town and school officials, launched the organization’s first Youth Board comprised of Brunswick and Greenwich Academy youth at an event last year.
In addition to fundraising, Youth Board members volunteer in CLC classrooms, support service projects and recently volunteered at CLC’s Gladys Knight Benefit Concert.
