Brief info on PL centres and their mandateParent Link approached us about joint initiativesWe were in the process of developing our ST kits . . . PL provided funding for the kits in exchange for recognitionAfter this PL offered to help support our programs and services and provided generous funding towards program supplies like instruments, large children's area rugs, soft seating and educational computer games
Talk about how ST Kits started as a tool for daycares and preschools . . .how PL became involved and provided funding
Mention specific material and equipment donations during PL windfall year. Early Literacy Stations, cushions for program room, activity centre for the public floor. Parent Link doesn’t have the physical space, and has a limited audience to share these treasures, so we were a logical beneficiary. We have a similar mandate in providing lifelong learning and leading early literacy initiatives.... Parent Link is happy to endorse us and provide support.
We provide recognition on our donor wall, in our program guide and on our website. Also many of our kits have a large label on them acknowledging Parent Links’ joint contribution (show kit).One reason it is beneficial to offer this type of visible, permanent recognition is that it offers some free PR to our partners, and that it shows how we are supported and valued in our community.
Cause my friends are your friends, and your friends are my friends…
