Photos often speak louder than words. Our photo gallery is a tribute to the many people who give us a reason to be here, and the wonderful volunteers that help make our programs come alive. Can you imagine yourself in one of these photos?

Where the Story Begins - Silent Auction

On March 8, 2018, we held a magical silent auction at the Culver Hotel in support of our popular early childhood literacy program, Where the Story Begins. We'd like to thank the generous businesses and individuals that donated to this event and the silent auction. We appreciate your support in our fight to raise the literacy rate one child at a time!

Raising Readers - 40th Birthday Party

Raising Readers, our 40th Birthday Party at Clover Park on October 22, 2016, was a fun-filled morning of music, reading, and fun activities. We'd like to thank our wonderful and generous sponsors for their support! You can find their names scrolling at the bottom of this page. We'd also like to express our gratitude to the many volunteers who helped to make this a very special event.

Holiday Angels Program

Our annual Holiday Angels Program is a year-end treat we give to the children enrolled in our child care subsidy programs and their families. This event wouldn’t be possible without wonderful volunteers who help collect new toys, books and other special gifts. Our volunteers are also our “elves,” wrapping gifts, helping families and spreading holiday cheer. Every year, thanks to our volunteers, we can count on at least one special surprise. In 2016, the LA D-Fenders were there to help wrap gifts and share in the holiday spirit!

Women's History Month

Over the years, we've been proud and honored to share pictures and stories of the women who've helped shape our history!

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
