Now, Childs Library is functional, but your donations will support the creation of an inspiring environment for students

NICE is raising money and volunteering to revitalize the Childs School library, turning it into a creative and warm learning environment.

Neighbors Investing in Childs Elementary (NICE) helps support excellent education for all children in the G.W. Childs Elementary School catchment area. We believe that at the heart of any vibrant neighborhood is a thriving school and we want to insure our heart keeps beating strong.

With your help, NICE will raise $4,000 to start helping G.W. Childs Elementary School with a variety of needs. Our first project is to complete the revitalization of the school library by painting a colorful mural, and creating playful but functioning work stations to inspire learning. In addition, we will install display racks for excess books, white boards and other learning tools. These improvements, along with digitizing the library system so that students can check books out to bring home will make Childs library a modern place where students can read, research, and imagine!

Circle of Hope Church
is offering to match our first $1,000. That means every dollar donated up to $1,000 earns the library project an extra dollar! Double your donation today!

UPDATE: Community Organization Diversified Community Services has donated $1,000 to our fundraiser! We are grateful to them for their generous contribution and hope their giving spirit inspires more donors! Visit http://dcsphila.org/ to learn more about how they are contributing to the success of the Point Breeze neighborhood.

Our ultimate goal is for students at Childs Elementary to have a fun, safe, and creative learning space. Something every child deserves.

*Note: NICE is a new organization and currently operating under the Nonprofit Status of Circle Venture, a 501c3 group that exists to help support groups that have passion for seeking positive change in their neighborhoods.
