Growing Brighter Tomorrows

Carteret Smart Start is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to serving children birth through age 5. Our programs are funded through Smart Start and the generous support of local donors. We are pleased to provide and/or fund many programs that promote Smart Start’s mission of helping all children in NC enter school healthy, motivated and ready to succeed.

#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Carteret Partnership for Children is asking that we continue to show social connection and come together on behalf of our childcare community.  These teachers are on the front lines each day to provide quality care and early education for our children.  It is vitally important that we help meet the needs of their classrooms and centers.

We are asking for your donation dollars to help to help offset the costs of supplies for our area childcare centers……your dollars will go to purchase:

* Classroom materials

 * Cleaning and disinfecting supplies

 * Diapers for families in need

and any other materials needed to make our childcare classrooms a safe and creative space for children and teachers.

Please donate NOW!
