center_for_alexandria's_children_toysWay to go ACTion Heroes! 

32 of you take action last week and donated 54 new toys to the Center for Alexandria's Children developmental playgroups. The toys you donated were selected by CAC staff to support children in all aspects of their emotional, social, cognitive and physical development.

Brain development in the first 3 years is critical to life-long academic outcomes and the language and literacy rich environment provided by the CAC developmental playgroups help address the gap in development of young children for some of the most vulnerable and underserved families in Alexandria.

The toys you donated will help hundreds of local children become confident learners as they prepare for kindergarten.

The developmental playgroups are provided in partnership with SCAN of Northern Virginia, the Giving Circle of Alexandria, and the Virginia Department of Social Services.
