HELP LOCAL CHILDREN IN MARIN CITY
Manzanita Child Development Center in Marin City (funded through Community Action Marin) offers care to young children in Marin City. Recently they've added to their programming so they now offer preschool through after school care, P-grade 5. The program is fortunate to have been chosen to be one of twelve finalists competing to win a playground from the Claritin Company. They are the only west coast finalist competing. The way they compete is through a web link to Facebook and daily votes by Facebook members now through September 26.
Manzanita serves about 60 children. They're competing against public elementary schools with far larger populations. They need help with gathering daily votes from now through September 26th. They will succeed if they end in one of the top four positions.
+ vote for Community Action Marin: www.CLARITINvoteforplayspaces.com
+ post to your Facebook page + your family members’ pages to invite others to vote (If you have no Facebook page, ask those who do!!)
+ speak with neighbors, colleagues and/or students: talk, talk, talk!
+ some other step that you're comfortable with
This is a community service effort for adults and students. Students are on Facebook. It is appropriate for all ages and a free volunteer activity to benefit others.
“I really want this playground so I can build a house and play with my friends. I don’t really like the park that we have now because we only have a hill, three trees, sticks and rocks.” Tyleigh, age 9
Go to: www.CLARITINvoteforplayspaces.com ; vote for Community Action Marin every day until September 26. Please ask friends and family to vote, too.
Thanks so much for helping to give the children of Marin City a playground!
