• Join Us for Little Wonders on June 2nd!

    Little Wonders is Child Care Resources Inc.’s primary annual fundraiser to support the organization’s mission and work — advancing access to quality child care to create opportunity for two generations, parent and child.

     

    This year, CCRI is pleased to present a completely customizable Little Wonders event. We’ll provide the food — chef-prepped, delightfully packaged, and delivered right to your door. You provide the atmosphere — whether that’s a picnic on the greenway, a dinner or cocktail party in your backyard, or a quiet meal at home!

     

    Meals will be delivered for you to pop in the oven on Thursday, June 2 or can be refrigerated for up to three days.

     

    This is Little Wonders your way, and no matter how, when, or where you and your guests choose to celebrate, you’ll be supporting Child Care Resources Inc.!
