Richardson To Deliver Check to Jardin de Los Niños
At noon on Monday June 29 Governor Richardson will deliver a check for $30,000 to Jardin de los Niños, a non-profit that provides child care for underprivileged parents who need but cannot afford day care. Jardin has been struggling to make ends meet in recent weeks, due in part to the downturn in the economy, which has raised the demand for child care from parents seeking work. Another check for $20,000 will be made to the institution at the same time, from a local donor. The public is invited to attend the function at Jardin de los Niños, 999 West Amador. The governor is also in town in connection with opening of the new cancer radiation treatment center at Memorial General Hospital, where he will speak just before his trip to Jardin de los Niños.
