Girl Scout troops from Hygiene organized a book drive for the children of Wild Plum Center. In May, they delivered over 600 books to us. It's community partnerships like these that we are so thankful for. Thanks, Girl Scouts!
We have formed a wonderful relationship with the Atria Senior Living Center in Longmont. We love when the residents come visit the classrooms, and we are deeply grateful for their generous hearts.
Thanks to resident/community activist Beverly Springer for her guest opinion piece on the sequester and WPC in the Longmont Times-Call. Her thoughtful and powerful piece has generated some much-needed donations for us.

We have launched a "15 Children" campaign! Wild Plum Center's budget was cut 5.27% due to the federal sequester. We were forced to close a site, lay off many staff members and most disturbing, let go of fifteen slots for children. We are trying to raise enough funds so that we can re-open a classroom for these fifteen children. Please consider making a donation now! Thank you.
