Childcare Center Working on Phase II of Fundraising

Back in 2020, the Mount Pleasant community identified the need for a community daycare center. Thanks to the dedication of many volunteers, businesses, and community leaders, a childcare center opened its doors in July of 2021. Over $200,000 has been raised from private donations. Those donation along with assistance from the Henry County Board of Supervisors and numerous state grants, funded the remodel of the facility on West Washington Street and allowed the center to get up and running. But as we all know the cost of supplies and food keeps increasing. The Mount Pleasant Childcare Center Board of Directors is now moving on to Phase II of fundraising. If you have not contributed to the Center, they hope that you will consider a cash donation at this time. All donations will be recognized on a donor wall at the center. The board will also recognize contributions on the Center’s Facebook page. And all donors will be recognized at a celebration party later this fall. Any amount is greatly appreciated! To make a donation with a credit card, please call 319-385-3101 or mail your donation to the Mount Pleasant Childcare Center, 304 W. Washington, Mount Pleasant, IA 52641.
