From Head of School, Lacey Scadden
All of our CEC School's are participating in Marlie's Stuffies For Emergencies from Nov. 1st until Thanksgiving.
In 2018 Marlie lost her dad to a motorcycle accident. At the hospital, she was given a stuffed animal to help her cope with the loss of her dad. Marlie's Stuffies for Emergencies provides stuffed animals to "kids who are going through hard times like me" Marlie said, and it was then that Stuffies for Emergencies started. This year the stuffies will be going to UC Health Hospitals and Realities for Children and Marlie's goal is to raise over 1000 stuffed animals. Please donate to help Marlie reach her goal! Click here
