ACCF not only provides high quality early childhood and after school programs, we also provide hot meals. Each year we provide over 243,000 meals and with the help of community partners like Publix, who donated $10,000 to ACCF in February, we can continue to provide hot meals to our students and #endhunger. Thank you Publix! #accf #nationalphilanthropyday #givingtuesday
We’d like to thank the Delray Beach Youth Tennis Foundation for their continued support at our Pine Grove and Village Academy programs. Each week they work with some of our elementary and middle school students by focusing on their mission which is to instill the values of leadership, academic excellence and healthy habits - all through the game of tennis. With their support we have seen our students achieve amazing things, including one of our students being awarded the United Tennis Association Foundations 2018 section winner (female age 11-12) for the NJTL Essay contest. She was selected from more than 2,700 entries that were submitted over the summer. We are so grateful for this amazing partnership! #accf #youthtennis #nationalphilanthropyday #greatgive2018
