There's Still Time to Donate to the C-Fund in 2014!

Thank you so much to all of our generous donors this year! We are especially grateful to the wonderful memorial fund donations we received honoring the lives of John Sturgill and Carol Kasmauski. We have been blessed!

It's not too late to send a donation for the 2014 tax year! When you donate to the Joyful Noise C-Fund, you are supporting the needs of not only young children in our care, but also those in the community that benefit from our free services such as early childhood music classes and community events.

Together, we can "C" the possibilities! Don't forget you can donate via credit card or paypal right here at the website, to your left!

Our Joyful Noise Scholarship Fund Needs Your Help!

Everybody needs a hand sometimes.

That’s why Joyful Noise Christian Childcare, a 501(c)3 nonprofit under the umbrella of First Presbyterian Church, started the Joyful Noise Scholarship Fund. Exclusively supported through financial donations from generous individuals, this reserve of money is intended to help families in attendance at the childcare center when an unexpected financial burden or crisis occurs.
For some, that might mean a medical emergency, or a loss of employment. No matter the reason, when a family is in need, the Scholarship Fund helps to offset tuition costs. Through the confidential application and screening process, a family’s needs are assessed and temporary assistance is provided as necessary.
What happens when the well runs dry?
When the Scholarship Fund is empty, Joyful Noise depends on the assistance of caring donors in the community to replenish it. Until new funds are created, the childcare center is unable to assist those who are in need.
 Can you help us to help others?

Make a tax-deductible donation today, in any amount, to the Joyful Noise Christian Childcare Scholarship Fund, and make a tremendous difference in a family’s life!

Gift of Music Classes June/July 2013

Click here to visit the official Facebook Event page, 

Summertime is here! That means a brand new round of A Gift of Music Classes. This year we've cooked up something so beneficial and fun for children in our community! Sing & Slide, for ages 2-5, is a free music class offering an instrument and take home materials for kids! Read all the details about the program in our Program Backrounder, here! Also check out the official press release.

That's not all we're doing for our early childhood community this year! Our instructor Chantal McDaniel is also traveling to Stepping Stones daycare (a service to the homeless and transient community and a part of Holland Rescue Mission) in Holland, Michigan! For three consecutive weeks, children will recieve on site early childhood music classes: fun songs, movement, and instrument exposure, along with send-home materials for parents and extenders for teachers at the daycare.

Check out the awesome instrument donation we were able to pass along to Stepping Stones due to a generous instrument donation from Kathleen McDonald, retired music and special education teacher from Mason, Michigan!
