CCR&R's Wine and Paint Event 

March 8, 2018

Register Now - Limited Seating

Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R), has been an integral part of the  Will, Kankakee, Grundy, and Kendall county communities for the last 27 years by providing programs and services for our families, early childhood education and care providers, and local businesses.

To support our programs and celebrate our progress, CCR&R is planning a wine and paint fundraising event that will take place on March 8, 2018, from 6 to 8 p.m. at 801 N. Larkin Ave., Suite 202, Joliet, IL 60435.

The event will feature a flight of various wines, assorted refreshments, and painting materials to create your own masterpiece! Justine’s Wine and Paint will be guiding us through our creativity. We will be selling tickets for a chance to win raffle items, one of which is a Wine and Paint Party donated by Justine herself.

Come explore and enjoy your creativity while enjoying a great time with your friends!

Money raised at the event will be used to support our vision that “Together We Are Changing Children’s Outcomes”.

CCR&R is here to assist you.

The Federal Government is now requiring that providers complete specific health, safety and child development training have current CPR/First Aid certification, and complete annual training hours.

Please help us spread the word.

Check with your child care provider now to make sure they know about the new requirements to continue receiving payments from the Child Care Assistance Program.
