The New Holland Early Learning Center kitchen, built in 1973, is in urgent need of an upgrade. The greatest need currently is a dishwasher. Because of the current pandemic, the Center is taking many precautions to keep the children and staff safe. Toys need to be handwashed each time they are used. A commercial dishwasher would greatly reduce the amount of time spent washing toys and also allow meals to be served on reusable plates.


The ELC kitchen needs to be remodeled to bring it in line with current standards. We are working to secure $150,000 in cash and/or pledges with the goal of beginning work in March of 2021.

The mission of the ELC is to provide quality care 
for children in the New Holland area while their parents work and to support the individual needs of every child. With your support, the Center will be able to better serve the nutritional and safety needs of the 


Will you help us fulfill our mission?

Gifts of any size are welcome and make a real difference. To meet the campaign goal and timeline, gifts small and large will be needed. The giving triangle suggests one way to reach the goal.  Please prayerfully consider the most generous gift/pledge you can make for the sake of the children.
