This year's Give to the Max Day is coming up fast: Nov. 17. As usual, Eden Prairie Early Childhood will participate in the fundraising drive and we hope you'll consider making a donation to our school. This year we will be able to help fund room improvements, curriculum advancements, teacher appreciation events, and supply purchases. These important purchases can't happen without help from our community. Please consider including us in your giving plan!
About Give to the Max Day:
Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to launch GiveMN, a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place. That initial spark touched off an outpouring of generosity — $14 million in 24 hours. Since then, Give to the Max Day has become Minnesota’s annual giving holiday, raising more than $250 million in its first 13 years. Every year, thousands of organizations and individuals generate donations and excitement for Minnesota causes that are working to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans.
Save the date for our next online meeting to hear from a pediatric sleep expert. We will hear from Kendra Mueller from Kaleidoscope Pediatric Sleep Consulting during our next meeting on Nov. 9 at 8 p.m.
This will be an online meeting and the meeting link will be provided closer to the event.
Help Pack Up the Diaper Drive:
At the conclusion of the diaper drive we will sort diapers by size and deliver to PROP in Eden Prairie. The packing will take place 9-noon Friday, Nov. 4 at Lower Campus. We are looking for several volunteers to help with this event. If you are willing to help out, please sign up here.
Teachers in Eden Prairie early childhood have been making a wishlist of items they could use to make classrooms and projects even better. Families and community members are invited to purchase items from the wishlist.
This is a great list of items to purchase for teacher appreciation or holiday gifts. Items can be new or gently used. If you have a matching toy that isn't getting used at home, consider donating it to early childhood.
Many families also find this opportunity useful to help teach students about giving and students feel pride about seeing their donated items in the classroom.
This wishlist will be open all year and new items will be added as the need arises. Check back often!
