The Turrell Fund donates to the Newark Day Center

The Newark Day Center will like to thank The Turrell Fund’s generous grant of $25,000.  This wonderful support will help us make big strides as we pursue our “Third Century Fund: Equity in Education”.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my long career with Newark Day Center has been the opportunity to meet wonderful people along the way.  Starting with the little learners who brighten our doors each day; to young parents committed to being the best they can be; to tireless grandparents; and to our supporters who come in all shapes and sizes.

Many thanks to the Turrell Fund for helping Newark Day Center meet new pinnacles in early childhood education.
