This holiday season, Kids Rule! in the Arts is collecting toys for the Achievement Center for Children & Families. For 40 years the Achievement Centers for Children & Families have supported the low-income community. What started out as a childcare center in 1969 with only 20 children has now evolved into a social services agency serving over 700 children and 150 adults. Programs and services help families make life altering changes. Achievement Center provides affordable childcare, after-school programs, adult education and resources to help families seek the assistance they need. Their vision is to break the cycle of poverty and help families realize economic self-sufficiency while preparing their children for academic success.
The members of Kids Rule! in the Arts, along with Santa, will present toys collected, and holiday cheer, to Achievement Center kids during an exciting Heartfelt Holiday Event at The Palm Beach Zoo in West Palm Beach on Wednesday, December 13, 2012at 3:30pm. The event will feature entertainment and the gifts collected will be handed out to deserving children. Toy collection is thanks, in part, to the generosity of IBERIA BANK and Arnstein & Lehr.
