Annual Day of Giving to Support Bethune Day Care Nursery

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Tuesday is the annual Day of Giving, which will benefit several local non-profits, including the Bethune Day Care Nursery.

"I have no worries. When I drop him off in the morning, I feel like he is ready for his day," Estephany Rojas said. "He is not crying. He is excited to see the teachers. He knows them and they know him. Everybody here is on a first-name basis here. I love it here, and he loves it too."

Rojas said the services provided by Bethune have allowed her to continue to work and support her family, something she says would not be possible without their help.

If you would like to help out the Bethune Day Care Nursery and their good work, you can take part in Tuesday's fifth annual Day of Giving. Just go to www.coastalbenddayofgiving.org.
