The happiest of birthdays!

Rudy Bear Giving Tuesday

Wow, what a day! Rudy Bear had the most amazing 2nd birthday, raising nearly $20,000 to build a new playground for our youngest friends. Thank you to the Curry Family Foundation for matching the first $7,000 of gifts and to all who helped us meet that match.

We’re in awe of the generosity of our community and want to thank all who contributed financially and helped us spread the word to friends and family. It’s amazing to see your passion and belief in this youngest generation.

Thanks to your generosity, we have kickstarted the fundraising to create this new playground and look forward to updating you as the project continues.

As we enter the final month of the year, we’re extremely grateful for your support of this project and our mission throughout the year. The final month of the year is the most crucial time for our fundraising that helps cover the cost of running our programs day in and day out, in addition to special projects like this playground. Thank you for your understanding and devotion to our mission.
