26th Annual Celebration for Children
In response to recommendations from public health officials and government authorities around COVID-19, Cornerstone Center for Early Learning has made the difficult decision to indefinitely postpone our 26th Annual Celebration for Children, originally scheduled for April 18, 2020 at the Marriott St. Louis Grand.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause our supporters and friends, and are working to select a new date that protects the safety and well-being of our guests, staff, and community as soon as we have adequate information to do so.
Although our event will not happen on April 18, the needs of the families and children that rely upon Cornerstone Center for childcare, education, diapers and wipes, formula, food, and access to community resources will remain when this pandemic has ended. Our staff is working diligently to maintain support for our families in the weeks to come and also to make sure that we have the resources to continue doing so after this crisis is over.
If you are in a position to offer financial support during this tumultuous time, we deeply appreciate your continued investments in Cornerstone’s mission. Your donation can be made through Facebook or through our donation page. Your contributions go directly toward continued supports for Cornerstone families and to maintaining the employment of our teachers and staff during this time of need.
Information will be updated here as we have it and on our Facebook page.
Thank you for your patience, support and understanding as Cornerstone perseveres on behalf of the families and children that we serve.
A very special thank you to our Celebration for Children sponsors. Your partnership is crucial and immensely appreciated in this time of uncertainty.
