Letters to the Editor

You’ve earned our gratitude | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

The South Whidbey Children’s Center would like to take this opportunity to thank many local businesses and foundations for their support over the last year.

Without your donations, grants and assistance we would not be able to offer a quality early learning and childcare program.

Through your support we have been able to offer scholarships to families that are not able to pay the full cost of tuition, purchase new materials, support the local economy and ensure that the children at the center have well-educated and dependable teachers by paying livable wages and benefits. We maintain and continue to improve our center and before/after school care program and offer professional development opportunities for our staff and community.

The South Whidbey Children’s Center has played a vital role in the South Whidbey community for more than 30 years and continues to be at the forefront of early learning — this is in great part due to the ongoing support of our community.

And so, it is with deep gratitude we would like to thank: the Arise Charitable Foundation, United Way, our board of directors, Prima Bistro, Stadler Studio, Music for the Eyes, China City, the Wayward Son, Half Link Bicycle Shop, Fireseed Catering, Bliss Salon, Whidbey Island Winery, Lone Lake Physical Therapy, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Interstate Label and Tag, the Color Box Salon, Old World Ales, Whidbey Island Bank, A Taste for Wines, Mukilteo Coffee Roasters, Bob Thurmond agent New York Life, Lowry James Booksellers, the Healthy Pet, Sebo’s Do-It Center, Pickles Deli, Useless Bay Coffee, Spoiled Dog Winery, Ott and Murphy Wines, Comforts of Whidbey, Holmes Harbor Cellars, Blooms Winery, Whidbey Island Yoga, Useless Bay Animal Clinic, Flatrock Productions, Second Street Wine,  Greenbank Cellars, CK Web-Sites and countless individual donors.

Thank you for your support.
