Vanguard crew are helping the next generation create their own favorite childhood experiences by supporting school readiness efforts in their communities. The Jump Start the School Year giving event is providing needed supplies for under-resourced early learning centers in Arizona and North Carolina. The purchases — crayons, erasers, construction paper, books, and more — will support children during the critical early years of development, helping them to grow, thrive, and learn.
In Arizona, the drive supports Child Crisis Arizona, which provides support for some of Arizona’s most vulnerable children, youth, and families.
The North Carolina drive supports Charlotte Bilingual Preschool, which leverages the long-term advantages of bilingualism to prepare Spanish-speaking children for success in school and life.
