EFFINGHAM -- The Effingham Public Library has announced a pilot In-home Daycare Outreach Program thanks to a $500 Community Champions Grant from Constellation, an Exelon Co.
A total of 10 in-home daycares will be selected for this pilot project, set to begin this fall. Effingham Public Library plans to provide a story time for the children at the day cares, along with bags filled with books and early literacy toys and games. These services will be provided on a monthly basis, and the bags will be interchanged among the participating in-home day cares.
Through Constellation’s Community Champions Program, organizations are encouraged to apply for small grants, up to $500, from Constellation for causes that are important to their community. Preferred consideration is given to those requests where the project, organization, or initiative focuses on education, environment, or youth.
