Dear Parents and Concerned Members of our Community:
After all the speculation and rumors, we, the Board of Directors, would like to inform you that the Lois Bronz Children’s Center has no intention of closing. Facing challenging economic times, we find ourselves in the same situation as many businesses across America, struggling to make ends meet. However, LBCC isn’t like most businesses. We provide vital services upon which hundreds of children and families depend every year. Our board and staff take this responsibility seriously and remain committed to caring for your children.
To address the financial pressure, we have made major adjustments to the way we operate. We have taken many cost cutting measures in our back office operations and business processes. These measures were planned and implemented very carefully so that they would not affect the availability or the quality of your children’s early childhood education.
For over 45 years, LBCC has been there for our parents who depend on us to take care of their children so that they can go to work. We are grateful for the support we have received over these four decades from Federal, State and County governments, WestCOP, corporations and other generous foundations and individuals. Yet now, many of these organizations and individuals are facing their own fiscal crises. It's important to remember, that as a private not-for-profit facility - not a public institution - we rely heavily on financial donations and we have been actively seeking funds from new corporations, individuals and foundations
Now we turn to you for ideas to raise money. It is the time for our community to come together to demonstrate its commitment to quality early childhood education in our own back yard.
On March 7th, Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner will host an indoor rally for parents and concerned community members. We urge you to attend and invite family and friends who can help support LBCC.
We look forward to seeing you on March 7th at 6:30 pm at the Greenburgh Town Hall, 177 Hillside Avenue. Please bring your ideas and donations!
LBCC Board of Directors
