Thank You

Over the past three months, both corporate and individual volunteers have made a significant impact by supporting the Early Learning Center and Child Thrive, and we bid farewell and wish the best of luck to a long-time CPA supporter as she embarks on her well-deserved retirement.

The Credera team join us for a Child Thrive “Friday Hangouts” session and put together an engineering/sound STEM project for our Thrivers to enjoy.

WGIRLS hosted an amazing Paint & Sip event where attendees painted their own Chicago Bean masterpiece.

Q Volunteering

Cotter Consulting, led by Sue O’Connor, had a lot of fun assembling bikes for our early learners.

Yetter Consulting Services provided much needed organizational support for the Early Learning Center by assembling accreditation binders.

We attended an emotional and heartfelt gathering to honor Elizabeth Marek, Old Saint Pat’s Outreach Coordinator. Beth has been a key resource and loving friend to CPA families, collecting essentials like diapers, formula, school supplies, and more.

Let us not forget the magical night at the Champions Gala, where sponsors, volunteers, staff members, and supporters came together to celebrate. It was an evening filled with fun and an inspiring showcase of CPA’s efforts in combating inequity.
