Operation Snow Pants

Growing Kids Learning Centers started Operation Snow Pants to make sure every Growing Kids' student had snow pants, a hat and gloves.  As a high-quality child care provider, outside activities are an important part of our educational program (and it is required by state licensing requirements when the temperature is over 25 degrees). With some families struggling, not all children come equipped with appropriate cold weather gear.

Growing Kids owners Mike and Beth Garatoni have funded this effort every year because they saw the need and knew they could help.  Any additional support is greatly appreciated as it helps us help our families.  All funds will go towards the purchase of snow pants, hats and gloves for all children in need at all Growing Kids Learning Centers.

 Thank you for your support.
