We need your help!

Giraffe Laugh families and teachers are hunkered down as we enter a time of uncertainty due to the recent outbreak of Covid-19. Every day, more and more people are being impacted by this pandemic and Giraffe Laugh took action to close our centers in conjunction with the nearby school districts to protect the families we serve and our community at large

While our centers are closed we are serving our mission in two ways: providing critical services such as food and supplies to parents and teachers, and learning how to teach our children while they are home through web-based social learning time. Think webinars, but for preschoolers!

We ask that you join us today by contributing toward Giraffe Laugh’s efforts to support our community and to continue building strong futures for our children and families.

If you'd like to be a part of impacting our youngest learners, please donate here today.
