August 2016 Updates

Preschool Graduation
This year Compassion Child Care has 9 pre-schoolers graduating to kindergarten! This class is unique because it is the first class that started in the infant room and went all the way through to the preschool class. As a preschool graduation gift, Linwood Wesleyan donated a backpack for each future kindergartner!

2016 Golf Tournament
CCC held its first Benefit Golf Tournament on Tuesday, July 26 at Willow Run Golf Course. A generous sponsor covered the entire cost of the event including entrance fees, prizes, and food. Therefore, the total funds raised of $48,755 went directly towards funding the general operations of CCC. For 2016, Compassion Child Care’s total budget is 1.4 million and the support shown at the Golf Tournament was a wonderful boost to fundraising efforts. Stay tuned for the date of the 2017 CCC Golf Tournament!

USF Nursing Students
For the third year in a row, the University of Sioux Falls’ Nursing Department is partnering with Compassion Child Care and sending their nursing students to volunteer and complete their practicum hours at the daycare. This has been a great partnership for Compassion Child Care and we look forward to the new faces each fall!
