CEDARS Celebrates 70 Years
The community is invited to celebrate with CEDARS (www.cedarskids.org) at their 70th birthday party, which will be held on May 2nd at 11:30 a.m. at the Lincoln Country Club. Tickets to the event are available for purchase at www.cedars-kids.org/birthdayparty. Businesses are encouraged to secure a table for employees and clients.
At the event, CEDARS will debut a book which chronicles the founding of the much-needed child-caring organization, the compassionate adults and businesspeople who made CEDARS a Home by bringing love into the lives of the children, and the stories of the kids who came out of crisis situations and found safety, stability and an enduring family.It is a similar story for the over 1,000 children each day who rely on CEDARS support 70 years later. Just as they did in the 1940s, CEDARS relies heavily on the support of the community to provide for the children and youth who come into their care.
In advance of the celebration event, CEDARS has released a birthday wish list: full size hygiene items, hair brushes, sunscreen, and bug spray. Anyone interested in learning more about CEDARS and how to change the life of a child is encouraged to visit www.cedarskids.org and follow along on Facebook (www.facebook.com/cedarskids), Twitter (www.twitter.com/cedarskids) and Instagram (www.instagram.com/cedarskids).
