Ebenezer Child Care Centers Collecting Coats for Kids

Sept. 20, 2010

MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- Parents throughout Greater Milwaukee are encouraged to go through their closets and pull out any winter coats that no longer fit their children to donate to the Condella’s Coats for Kids Campaign. The slightly used children’s coats will be cleaned by ITU and distributed by The Salvation Army to other children who need them.

Children’s coats that are in good condition can be donated September 21 through October 17 at Ebenezer’s:

•Mequon Child Care Center located at 10333 N. Enterprise Dr., Mequon

(near the corner of Donges Bay Rd. and 76th/Wauwatosa Rd.)

•Downtown Child Care Center located at 340 W. St. Paul Ave., Milwaukee (across from the main post office)

•Southside Child Care Center located at 1496 S. 29th St., Milwaukee

•Oak Creek Child Care Center located at 220 W. Forest Hill Ave., Oak Creek

•Wauwatosa Child Care Center located at 10701 W. Research Dr., Wauwatosa (use the side entrance to the UnitedHealth Group building)

All centers are open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., with the exception of the Wauwatosa Center, which is open from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Ebenezer Child Care Centers is a partner in the 2010 Condella’s Coats for Kids Campaign organized by WITI FOX 6. This is the 24th year of the campaign that has helped thousand and thousands of area children.

“Providing a coat can make a difference for a family living in poverty,” said Major Deborah Sjögren, Milwaukee Salvation Army. “As daily living costs rise, every dollar counts, and a free coat allows for dollars to be spent in other areas such as food, rent, or heat.”

Vince Condella, WITI FOX 6 Chief Meteorologist, has been leading the campaign since the beginning. “I am counting on the generosity of everyone again this year,” said Condella. “This entire effort is completely dependent on one person helping another by donating a coat.”

Since 1968, Ebenezer Child Care Centers has been a locally-based agency committed to providing early childhood programs from the heart.

The agency prides itself on being different from other child care providers in that it offers a home-like atmosphere, individualized, nurturing care, and a structured curriculum that is virtues-based for every child’s developmental stage.

Every Ebenezer Child Care Center focuses on all aspects of a child’s development: cognitive, physical, emotional, and social. In addition to providing quality care, the agency also offers a variety of free Family Fun Nights and other educational programming all aimed at helping parents.

The agency’s main office is located at 1496 South 29th Street, Milwaukee. For more information on Ebenezer Child Care Centers visit www.ebenezerchildcare.com
