Support the Children First Fund honoring Jeanie Hayward

The Mareda Center is pleased to announce the Children First Fund honoring our former board chair, Jeanie Bugert Hayward.  Jeanie has been a tireless advocate for children and has worked passionately to insure all children have a high quality education experience.  It is thanks to Jeanie that the Center established its first summer program and has been able to work with hundreds of students making sure they get in a good school, stay in school, and have everything that is needed to be successful.


Belts, school shoes, gym shoes, socks & backpacks are the "universal equalizer" for students in need.  Providing a school uniform, a gym uniform, team/sports fees, sports uniforms & other necessities offer students a well-rounded school experience.  



Your gift to a class will support a robust after school experience designed to foster a positive self-image, build leadership qualities, and teach children how to work together to accomplish goals.  Our goal is to keep kids off the streets and out of trouble.  Support this "mission critical" work today!
