Hillsboro, Kansas. Mike Padgett, President of Central National Bank Hillsboro presented a $5,000 check to Max Heinrichs from the Hillsboro Community Foundation on Wednesday, December 28th.
“This contribution helps support the future of Hillsboro,” said Padgett. “Access to child care resources is a vital part of keeping jobs here in our community and supporting small town business. We’re glad to have the opportunity to help support this initiative, which can ultimately bring more jobs and young families to our communities.”
Today, more parents work outside of the home than in previous generations. As a result, child care needs continue to grow in many Kansas communities. A community child care center would provide diverse options for infant and early childhood education for more than just Hillsboro families – reaching all of Marion County. The plans also include creation of community center space to be utilized by more than the proposed child care center.
The Child Care Center is expected to cost $2 million dollars. Contributions can be made to the Hillsboro Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Central Kansas Community Foundation.
