GARDEN CITY, Kan. -- In 1965, the Russell Child Development Center (RCDC) opened its doors as a daycare facility for children with developmental disabilities. Since then, RCDC has outgrown four buildings, opened four satellite offices and served thousands of families in Southwest Kansas.
As a way to celebrate 55 years, RCDC announced a Double Nickel Campaign. This campaign encourages supporters to help RCDC by donating an amount with two number fives in it. This campaign will help provide funding for the Building a Brighter Future Campaign, which has allowed RCDC to expand its services through a larger, more accessible facility in Garden City.
To coincide with its 55th Birthday Celebration, RCDC also unveiled a fresh new logo!
Each of RCDC Programs also sports a new logo.
RCDC Executive Director Deanna Berry said, "We at RCDC are honored to have received such a positive response to our 55th Birthday Celebration and new agency logo unveiling. As Fred Rogers famously said, 'Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me' and, my goodness, do the young children served by RCDC have lots of helping heroes in their lives! Thank YOU for being one of them."
