HOLIDAY GIVING – Experience Gifts

The holiday season is a generous time of year with many people donating time, talent and treasure to those in need.  Instead of coats and toys, the Center hopes that you will donate the treasure of an experience outside of the Center. From ice skating at Leddy Park Ice Arena and visiting the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center to creating a piece of pottery at Burlington City Arts’ Craft Studio, Experience Gifts is a way to give great opportunities to kids enduring poverty.

Thanks to generous donors, last year children were able to explore their community by ice-skating, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, rock climbing, creating pottery, exploring winter in Vermont, experiencing the awe of the big-screen at the movies, bowling, and much more.

We hope that you will join in giving children Experience Gifts– gifts that create opportunities, nurture abilities and make memories.  Click the link to see a list of Experience Gifts opportunity suggestions. Don’t forget your remittance form.
