This donation will help provide much-needed program supplies, learning materials and equipment replacement for Child's Path, a CCCR early childhood development center located in Golden Gate City. The CarMax Foundation has been a supporter of CCCR since 2013, with donations totaling over $30,000.

Bill Mahoney, Location General Managersaid, "Our partnership with CCCR has been very meaningful over the past five years because investing in the future of children through education is important to our associates. CCCR strives to provide high-quality early childhood education, so we work hand-in hand to see how we can make a difference."

"We are overwhelmed with appreciation for the generous grant monies donated to CCCR through The CarMax Foundation," stated Niccole Howard, Executive Director of CCCR.  "In addition, we are grateful for the time and resources their employees have given, collecting school supplies each year and volunteering to work on projects such as special art activities with the children. We can't thank CarMax and The CarMax Foundation enough for their support."

CCCR's mission is to provide high quality early childhood care, education and resources to children, families and early learning professionals in Collier County. CCCR served approximately 300 children in 2016-2017 in its four early childhood education programs.
