FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 1, 2005
The Dartmouth Boys and Girls Club received much needed financial support for its TLC3 Pre-School Program today from Eastlink.
Eastlink donated $10, 000 to help keep the program operational. Lee Bragg, Co-CEO presented the cheque today to two of the children currently enrolled in the program, Courtney Pearce and Jared Grinter.
"We believe in the benefits the program offers children and the importance its plays in the local community," said Lee Bragg, Co-CEO, Eastlink. "The first year of school is very important and for these children to access to a program such as this means increased opportunities for them as they enter the public school system."
The program, which operates four days a week, promotes children's language, cognitive, social and emotional development. In addition to preparing children for their first year of school, the program encourages parents to play active role in the learning process and through participation in volunteer and fundraising efforts.
"Eastlink's donation to the TLC3 program has made life so much easier for families in this community," said Nancy Hollis, Executive Director, Dartmouth Boys and Girls Club. "We can continue to offer the program to local families and their children. Without it, monthly fees would have increased and this would have limited access to those who need most."
The Boys and Girls Club, in partnership with the Dartmouth Family Resource Center has operated the program since 2001. Since that time the program has helped children with their reading and writing skills before entering into the public school system.
