Joining Forces

There is no such thing as "other people's children", and it is our responsibility as a community to work together for the common good of the youngest members of our society. Please join us in our efforts to help local children. If you would like to join the team please contact us today to be added to our email list. You will be among the first to know of exciting volunteer opportunities that make an impact right here in your own community!

Community Partners

Ensuring every student has what they need to learn is truly a community effort. We work with businesses, organizations, student groups, churches, and individuals on a variety of partnerships that are mutually beneficial. We can design an event, drive, or program that works for your organization and helps you meet your goals for community engagement and brand awareness while helping the local children who need it most. We can assist with the planning, development of program marketing materials, advertising, and much more!

Ways To Help

There are a number of ways to help children in your own community:

  • Donate items
    Cleaning out your closets? We accept new and used kids' clothes! Headed out on a shopping trip? Pick up some school supplies! Visit our Donate page for a list of items you can donate.
  • Organize a collection drive
    Do you own or manage a local business? Are you part of a service organization? Host our Spot bin and collect donations, offer a customer incentive for donating, or create an event that works for you!
  • Donate money
    100% of funds donated go directly to purchasing items for local students. Checks should be made payable to “FLACE/The Spot” and they can be mailed to us at: The Spot, PO Box 563, Canandaigua 14424. For donations over $50 donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes. Online donations can be made by visiting https://www.cnbank.com/FLACE/.
