Constructive Playthings Works to Rebuild Classrooms in the Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy
Grandview, MO, March 16, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Community Parents Inc. is a comprehensive parent and early childhood program, serving children 3-5 years old and works to promote self-sufficiency and community empowerment. Their facility is currently located in Far Rockaway, New York and recently felt the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy. Executive Director, Cynthia Cummings, ran a disaster relief center and food bank for many of the families in need that her organization typically benefits.
Constructive Playthings, an early childhood education company, took multiple steps to help Community Parents Inc. including assisting in securing a grant from the Turner Family Foundation for $4,000 in emergency assistance funds. The early childhood education company also arranged for the delivery of much needed items including coats, jackets, and other warm-weather necessities to the families involved in Community Parents Inc., in addition to a large donation of the company’s holiday toys and classroom materials.
On January 28, 2013, employees of Constructive Playthings traveled to Far Rockaway, NY to help rebuild and install 6 new classrooms to get Community Parents Inc. kids back into school. These classrooms opened on February 4, 2013 with regular classes returning to their normal location in June 2013.
