Rebuild Manhattan Kids Club II

Manhattan Kids Club II is a nurturing, educational child care facility on East 14th street in New York City. Last week, Hurricane Sandy filled the school with 4 feet of water leaving it unusable for the children and staff. The MKC community is coming together on behalf of the owner Beth Garcia to raise money for the restoration of the space, new furniture, educational materials and supplies.

Manhattan Kids Club II is much more than a neighborhood day care and Pre-K located in the East Village. Opening almost a decade ago in New York's Stuyvesant Town, founder Beth Garcia started her own daycare after facing her own challenges of finding quality day care service in Manhattan. In so doing, she was named working mother of the year by Working Mother Magazine. Beth has created a great space and brought together a top notch staff of teachers and caregivers. In doing so, she has also created an extended community of families who are proud to be a part of this special learning environment.

The facility was ravaged by hurricane Sandy last week, with 4 feet of flood waters rushing through the doors, destroying everything.

As usual, Beth quickly rallied and has already begun the rebuilding process, determined to maintain a thriving community for all of the young children. But it is a huge challenge that she is facing. Everything from walls and insulation, carpeting and flooring was destroyed by the storm. Every toy and book, cubby and desk had to be thrown away. Every single thing will need to be replaced.

Let's all rally to the cause and help Beth reopen Manhattan Kids Club II as quickly as possible! 100% of your donation will go towards rebuilding this incredible childhood learning institution.
