Dear D.A.R.E. and Gotham City LA,
Thank you for brightening the holidays for the young children and students with special needs served by the Exceptional Children’s Foundation (ECF). With the help of your donation of 400 toys, we ensured that every child we serve received a holiday gift this year.
Our Early Start program provides critical early intervention for infants and toddlers with developmental delays and other special needs. Students attending our K-12 public school receive individualized instruction and therapeutic services to help them overcome learning, emotional and behavioral challenges.
Most of our clients live in low-income families, many of whom have struggled even more during the pandemic to meet even their basic needs – much less buy “extras” like toys. With the support of donors like you, we were able to help parents and caregivers make sure their children had a happy holiday.
Thanks again for your generous donation.
Scott D. Bowling, Psy.D.
President & CEO
