CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) Chicopee Child Development Center has been serving local families since 1969. Alissa Finnerty & Kelly Hosey joined us to share more about this organization.
About the Chicopee Child Development Center:
(CCDC), a private, non-profit daycare and early childhood learning center right here in Chicopee, is participating in Valley Gives Day. CCDC has been serving local families since 1969–45 years! The goal of our participation in Valley Gives Day is to raise funds to assist families with affordable daycare. CCDC offers a sliding-fee scale for families that do not qualify for government subsidies/vouchers. In order to offer this income-based fee scale we must raise funds to off set the cost. The law does not allow us to charge families less than the government pays for subsidized slots so the cost of these “scholarships” is paid through fundraising. We are now serving a third generation of children. With so many worthy charities in the Pioneer Valley, our hope is that CCDC alumni will think of us when planning their holiday giving.
