Did you know we are still collecting receipts for our School Bucks program? You can send receipts in to ECEC, or see below for information!

2021 SCHOOL BUCKS PROGRAM
HOW IT WORKS:
SHOP. SHOW. WIN!
After shopping and dining, your school’s family and friends can fill out the form and either place it in the drop box at the Security Desk (located near the Regal entrance) along with your original receipts, or show your original receipts at the Management Office (located past the bathrooms near Sephora) to accumulate points. Shoppers must specify which participating school to allocate the points to. For every dollar spent at Colonie Center, your school will receive two points!

Giving Tuesday
Early Childhood Education Center—Day of Giving
With the growing need of support produced by COVID-19 NOW more than ever, you can make an impact in the lives of our students and the communities ECEC serves on GivingTuesday.
Together we can make a difference.
Join the movement & give back!
The Early Childhood Education Center provides a range of services beyond special education, including occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, teacher of the deaf, teacher of the visually impaired, vision and hearing screenings, social work services, counseling, testing, and family support groups.
But we can’t do it alone! Today your support celebrates GivingTuesday and helps ECEC continue to build a strong community by the work we do and the students and families we serve.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
