Collier Child Care Resources (CCCR) announced the addition of nine new businesses to the “CCCR Business 100,” bringing the total to 77. The goal is to attain 100 members for this group comprised of local businesses, foundations and civic associations that make an annual contribution to CCCR’s early learning programs. Recent additions include: Charlie McDonald Photography, Healthcare Network of SWFL, Lucky’s Market, Naples Luxury Imports, Purpose Journey, Seasons 52, Sherwin-Williams, Shula’s Naples and Soukup Strategic Solutions.
Collier Child Care Resources’ mission is to provide high quality early childhood care, education and resources to children, families and early learning professionals in Collier County. CCCR served 275 children in 2015-2016 in its early childhood education programs. The contributions of the CCCR Business 100 group directly benefit some of these children by providing tuition assistance, equipment and supplies. Many of the children who attend the programs are at risk for academic failure and come from lower-income working families, with some living at or below the poverty level.
Niccole Howard, Executive Director of Collier Child Care Resources says, “So far this year we have added 16 new members, bringing the number of CCCR Business 100 members to 77. Members of the CCCR Business 100 have an enormous impact not only in monetary terms. Their contributions are numerous and varied. Some sponsor free networking events, which always attract new supporters, serve on our boards, and volunteer. We are grateful for their support.”
