At Little Jewels, we love giving back to our community! Our staff understands that community involvement is not just significant for adults. It also plays an essential role in childcare, development, and social interaction, increasing awareness of identity and feelings of belonging. Connecting with the community teaches a variety of valuable lessons that can develop children into mindful and active citizens. We want to set an excellent example for the kids we teach and show them the value of sharing and lending a helping hand. That's why we make sure to stay involved with a variety of organizations in McLean County.
Little Jewels believes in the power of giving and how it can make a positive impact on the world. We fundraise for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital year-round to defeat childhood cancer, stop other life-threatening diseases, and assist families financially. We feel we must do our part to help those in need, and we will continue to do what we can to make others' lives better. Little Jewels is a strong supporter of The Baby Fold, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and families across Central Illinois. The Baby Fold provides a variety of services, including adoption support and foster care, special education, early intervention programming, and more. We also make sure to attend their Festival of Trees each year, where 100% of proceeds go to serving children and families in need!
Each spring, Little Jewels participates in the Easter Seals Coins for Kids fundraiser. Easter Seals Central Illinois is an organization that assists children with disabilities, developmental delays, and special needs so that they can reach their fullest potential. They offer therapy services, autism services, and support, early intervention, and much more to children from birth to age 21. Easter Seals is consistently raising awareness about disabilities, educating, and promoting advocacy to communities across Illinois.
