This week Gus the Bus and The Sunshine Bus became media darlings, along with their wonderful teachers and students and a generous donor from Natural Soda. Kirk Daehling, general manager of Rifle-based Natural Soda Corporation stopped by the bus to see the value of his $10,000 donation to ACF’s Preschool on Wheels program. We are very grateful for his support, and glad that he could see the bright beneficiaries of his investment in our region’s youth!
Because 90% of brain development occurs before age five, early education is essential to helping children succeed academically and in later life. The Preschool on Wheels program is a licensed mobile preschool program that delivers this experience to young children in Rifle, New Castle and Silt who would otherwise not have access to preschool.
