CRC Thanks Leslie Gevurtz for more than 7 years of board service

Community Resources for Children thanks Leslie Gevurtz for more than 7 years of board service. Her passion for improving the quality of life of CRC’s clients was evident in the fundraising events she helped plan, the many hours she volunteered on the Board and on various committees, and the financial contributions she made to CRC. Leslie contributed to CRC with her extensive experience in sales, paralegal services, real estate, restaurant ownership, and business promotions, but it was her passion for art that will leave a lasting impact on the organization; with her artistic talent and eye for design, Leslie was instrumental in organizing art projects for our Active Minds early learning program and helping us plan and set up beautiful and whimsical silent auction lots and presentations at our fundraising events.

As the owner/educator at Art Lab, Leslie provides art instruction to children, teens and adults. She was founding faculty and Art Specialist at Blue Oak School from 2002-2013 and has developed and implemented visual art curriculum at a multitude of Napa Valley schools, both public and private.

Thank you for your contributions to CRC and the families and children in our community, Leslie!

Jazz & Friends Virtual Community Reading / Lectura Comunitaria Virtual

Join Rainbow Action Network and Community Resources for Children for our 2nd Annual Jazz & Friends Community Reading (Virtual) on Thursday, February 25th at 3:30pm. We will be reading It’s Okay to be Different by Todd Parr in both English and Spanish. After the book, we will have a brief discussion and walk children through a related craft activity.
Please register for the event here: http://bit.ly/2YLra2t
Craft activity materials for 50 children will be provided by Community Resources for Children and are available for pick up at 3299 Claremont Way #1, Napa, CA 94558 on the following days and times:
Tuesday February 23 8:30am -12:30pm
Wednesday February 24 8:30am -12:30pm

If you have any questions, please contact Lilea at lilea@first5napa.org
Note: This event is specifically geared towards children 3-6 years old, though all children are welcome. Because it is geared towards this age group, we have chosen a book that will be a better fit for a virtual event for this age group than the Welcoming Schools recommendations. However, we highly recommend you read When Aidan Became a Brother by Kyle Lukoff with your children at home or in the classroom.
Únase a Rainbow Action Network y Community Resources for Children para nuestra segunda lectura comunitaria anual Jazz & Friends (virtual) el jueves 25 de febrero a las 3:30 pm. Leeremos Está Bien Ser Diferente, escrito por Todd Parr en inglés y español. Después del libro, tendremos una breve discusión y guiaremos a los niños a una actividad de arte.

Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con Lilea en lilea@first5napa.org
Este evento está dirigido específicamente a niños de 3 a 6 años, aunque todos los niños son bienvenidos. Debido a que está dirigido a este grupo de edad, hemos elegido un libro que se adaptará mejor a un evento virtual para este grupo de edad que las recomendaciones de Welcoming Schools. Sin embargo, le recomendamos que lea “When Aidan Became a Brother” de Kyle Lukoff con sus hijos en casa o en su salón.
