Coolest Dog in the Shenandoah Valley

What does a community service group do when they find out there is a major shortage of childcare options for working families due to the Covid-19 pandemic? It takes action.

The Shenandoah Valley Kiwanis Club, which serves the Staunton-Augusta County-Waynesboro community, is taking a novel approach to the child care problem. We're launching this unique fundraiser to find the "Coolest Dog in the Shenandoah Valley." Some might ask—what does a dog contest have to do with child care? The answer is—nothing. That's not the point.

During these challenging times caused by Covid-19, childcare has become an urgent issue for working families. All contest proceeds will support the recently established Creative Collaborative Coalition for Childcare (C4) which is addressing this vital need in our community. Primary C4 partners include the United Way of Staunton, Augusta County, and Waynesboro; and the Staunton and Waynesboro YMCAs. Major support is also being provided by Augusta Health, Community Action Partnership for Staunton, Augusta County and Waynesboro, Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge, and the faith community. For more information about the C4, click here.

The Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge will be providing a matching grant for the first $1,800 raised by the contest.

We hope the community will have fun with this contest and hope to bring greater awareness for the critical need for quality child care for working families.
