Dear fellow Hillcrest parent,
Thank you to all those families who were able to attend the Harvest Festival last Saturday! It was a wonderful evening of autumn celebration.
It was an also opportunity to pause and reflect on why we’ve become part of Hillcrest and why we stayed after 7 years.
As the Bain family, we love Hillcrest because we know that when we drop our three-year-old off at preschool every day that he will be safe, loved, and respected. We know that he’ll eat healthy food prepared by a caring person. We know he’ll sing songs, play games, and interact with his friends, under the guidance of incredible teachers. We trust Hillcrest. And we’re grateful to have this place for children in our community.
In that spirit, the Hillcrest Board has launched a new Annual Fund giving campaign to benefit our childcare center. The Board works hard to keep tuition low, and we need additional funds in order to keep up with maintenance on our aging building, as well as provide rewards for staff members.
Hillcrest’s goal to raise $15,000 before the end of the calendar year.
Funds raised will go toward:
A holiday bonus for teachers and staff members;
New classroom and hallway flooring;
A building maintenance reserve fund.
We need your help. We hope you’ll consider making a meaningful gift to Hillcrest in the next three months. You can make your donation by credit card at Hillcrest, or by dropping an additional check. You can also alert Christina to a pledge, who can add it to your monthly childcare statement. Your gift is tax deductible and Hillcrest will provide you with a receipt. We also welcome introductions to friends, neighbors, and other giving programs who may be interested in supporting Hillcrest.
There are many good causes in Anchorage that deserve our charitable dollars—this is one that will benefit all our children, as well as future generations of Hillcrest kids. Thank you for considering a gift this year!
Aleesha Towns-Bain and Cameron Bain
