CECI thanks volunteer for time
The Children’s Education Center of the Islands recently extended its thanks to Bob Popoff. He came to CECI a few months ago in search of volunteering, in lieu of other organizations temporarily halting their volunteering programs. Officials reported that the preschool facilities are in desperate need of love and care, and with a fixed budget due to COVID-19, Popoff has become a hero in CECI’s eyes. He comes in every day and fixes, cleans, paints, mends and offers all of his help when he can. Every year, CECI’s board of directors and its families pour their time, energy and efforts into fundraising. Due to recent times, CECI has had to creatively think of ways to raise funds and many community members and organizations have donated to the cause.
