4. Stepping Stones Thanks Christopher’s
Stepping Stones Preschool has recently received a very generous monetary donation from Christopher's restaurant in Ludlow, VT. We would like to send out a huge thank you from the students, staff and board of directors for supporting their local preschool by helping defray the cost of much needed everyday supplies. Today's tough economic conditions can make it difficult for Stepping Stones to meet all the children’s' needs without the generous support of community leaders like Christopher's. Thank you so much!
