|4C's 2011 Annual Report|
(CINCINNATI--May 16, 2012) At 4C's annual meeting May 7, news was shared for the first time that 4C is one of 500 finalists nationwide in Toyota's annual 100 Cars for Good competition. New board members were also elected and the 2011 annual report, Getting Ready for 40--that is, 4C's 40th anniversary--was also unveiled at this event. An array of outcomes for all 4C programs are reported along with the fact that 4C positively impacted 169,255 children in 2011 through its services to child care providers and parents.
Help 4C 'drive quality' with a new Toyota! In her "State of the Agency Report," President/CEO Sallie Westheimer announced that 4C was selected from 5,000 nonprofits nationwide as one of 500 finalists in 100 Cars for Good. Five agencies compete each day for 100 days. The agency that receives the most votes each day is awarded a free Toyota. 4C has its eye on a Toyota Prius to help cut the transportation costs involved in making over 1,999 visits to provide consultations to child care programs in our 33-county area.
4C's assigned voting day is not until August 9, but now is the time to mark your calendar, sign up for a Facebook account if you don't already have one and "like" 4C on Facebook. The only way to vote on August 9 is through a Facebook account.
Each agency had to create a two-minute video about why a free car would support their mission, but contest rules prohibited the showing of this video at the annual meeting, which was before the release date. But it can now be viewed on 4C'sYouTube channel. Check it out--and mark your calendar to vote for 4C on August 9.
