2019 Superhero for Heroes
It's that time of year again! Our Superhero for Heroes fundraiser is right around the corner! This year our annual fundraiser will be held anytime between September 1st - 15th! After you sign your center up below to participate you will receive a toolkit with posters, stickers, and all the items you will need to have a successful fundraising event.
The center that raises the most money will win a 3 or 4 night cruise. All other centers participating will have the opportunity to win the 2nd cruise by receiving an entry ticket for every $500 raised that will be placed in the drawing. To be eligible for both cruises your donations must be in the GCCA office by September 20th. Winners will be announced at our Fall Owners' & Directors' Conference on September 27th. We want to give a special THANK YOU to Gabriel Lopez with Innovative Administrative Services (IAS) for sponsoring the cruises for this year's fundraiser.
This creative event allows us to recognize everyday heroes while raising money to support teachers and centers across Georgia's child care industry. This year all donations will go towards GCCA's philanthropic arm, Early Education Development Alliance (EEDA) and The Atlanta Children's Shelter.
The Early Education Development Alliance (EEDA) is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to enhancing the quality of child care provided by the 3,100 licensed child care centers across Georgia. EEDA was created as the philanthropic arm of Georgia Child Care Association (GCCA). EEDA will enrich early learning environments to improve outcomes for children and stimulate a love for learning.
Founded in 1986 by the Junior League of Atlanta and located in the North Avenue Presbyterian Church, the Atlanta Children’s Shelter provides free, quality child care, emotional support, an educational curriculum for homeless children, and focused social services for their families.
Dedicated to helping families overcome the issues that contribute to homelessness, including domestic violence and job loss, the Atlanta Children’s Shelter focuses on the long term self sufficiency of the family – which sets them apart from other Atlanta homeless shelters. Since 1986, the Atlanta Children’s Shelter has cared for almost 8,000 children and provided services for more than 5,000 families.
