Guests: Mary Ann Drescher, president/CEO, Attic Angel Community; Anne Dorne, Vice Chair, Attic Angel Association; Abbi Kruse, Executive Director, The Playing Field…
Since its inception in 1889, when the two Bryant sisters scavenged through their attic to find clothing and other items for needy children, the Attic Angel Association has remained committed to their mission of finding a need in the community and doing something about it. They expanded that mission over the years to include the needs of seniors as well as children.
For their 130th birthday, the Association is planning a public birthday party on Sunday, July 28, from 1 – 4 pm on their grounds on the corner of Old Sauk and Junction Roads. In celebration, Attic Angel has chosen to give back to the community and invites the public to join with them – to support The Playing Field, a non-profit early learning and child care center serving an economically-diverse group of children, many who experience early trauma.
On this program, Mary Ann Drescher and Anne Dorn, share the Attic Angel history and the plans for their 130th birthday celebration. They are joined by Abbi Kruse, executive director of The Playing Field who describes The Playing Field’s unique model of high quality education and care and how the Attic Angel contribution will benefit them.
