February 5, 2021 —Kendal~Crosslands Communities employees and residents donated close to 100 gifts and delivered them on December 17th to the children of Tick Tock Early Learning Center, located in Avondale, PA. For Liz Stropnicky, Program Director of the center, “this was a welcome opportunity to share in the love that this time of the year brings and Kendal~Crosslands really went all out for the kids.”
For the employees and residents of Kendal~Crosslands, “this was our eighth year in giving to the Tick Tock Center,” said Audrey Super, Director of Human Resources. “We were grateful for the opportunity to provide joy to the children and we look forward to continuing to do so each year.” Super and the staff organized the donation drive. “We placed, within the community, a ‘giving tree’ full of ornaments with notations of children’s names and ages and quickly the ornaments were gone. The employees and residents have really embraced the spirit of giving this holiday season and we are so happy to be a part of a wonderful donation,” said Super.
Tick Tock has a longstanding history in Chester County. From the foresight of the minds of local Quaker women and other local citizens, Tick Tock was established in 1964 to serve the need for high quality child care for families who worked in the mushroom industry in the Kennett Square area. Tick Tock has grown to offer reliable child care, preschool and after-school programs for the children of low income households in Southern Chester County.
