$15,000 Judy and Ray McCaskey Preschool Challenge

Two little girls walking hand in hand and viewed from behind play at preschoolThe Judy and Ray McCaskey Preschool is the only school in the Midwest where children who are blind or visually impaired learn alongside sighted children.  All of our children need extra support because they have a visual impairment and/or come from a disadvantaged background.

Board member, Judy McCaskey, and her husband, Ray, for whom our Preschool is named, have offered a generous challenge for back to school this year.  If we can raise $15,000, they will match the money raised, up to $15,000!  Please click here for more details.
