Between July 15 and August 15, G.L.O.W. Children Early Learning Center, a not-for-profit childcare center located in downtown Spokane, is hosting a virtual family event called Bin-GLOW. For a suggested donation of $10, families can print off or receive a hard copy of a Bin-GLOW (bingo-type) card with 20 family-friendly activities. As families complete the activities, they can post a photo to social media and possibly win prizes. Activities include such things as: tell a tree a story and then listen to the tree’s story, take a rainbow walk outside your home, see how high you can stack a pile of rocks, and children’s yoga.
Families are encouraged to ask their communities to donate pledges for each activity that will go to support G.L.O.W. Children Early Learning Center. GLOW offers childcare to the students of Lumen High School, a new public charter high school for pregnant and parenting teenagers, as well as a small preschool program for the general public. The focus of the program is to combine wraparound community support with five core values: belonging, discovery, tenacity, flexibility, and empowerment.
