Community Education relies on the support of our generous community to continue to meet the needs of Bowling Green-Warren County through the programs we offer. Remember, ALL donations are tax-deductible.
Did you know that by supporting Community Education through your donation you will be supporting children in our program? For children with special needs, a one-on-one aide can be provided at $5,300 per child for two semesters. The aide provides additional support for the child to be an active and engaged participant in the program. Your support will make a difference for families with special needs children that are enrolled in our program.
Absolutely 100 percent of the money raised stays here in Warren County and will be used for our programs. Such programs include before- and after-school programs that provide child care to about 1,000 local children of working parents; Teen Angel, which provides Christmas assistance to needy teenagers in school; enrichment opportunities for adults; summer activities for children, and much, much more.
We could not feasibly cover such costs without generous donations from our community.

On Friday, Dec. 4 Teen Angel held it’s 10th annual Donation Blast at the Starbucks on Scottsville Road, Campbell Lane, and Corvette Drive sponsored by Crocker Law Firm.
We had a LARGEST Blast EVER, raising $12,904.74.
Crocker Law Firm matched that amount, penny for penny bringing the one-day total to $25,809.48.
Joshua Smith, Coordinator for Teen Angel, says “To say, “Thank You” seems so insufficient. Words truly cannot express the appreciation and thanks we feel to everyone who donated on Friday. With Covid-19 and how things are in our world, we cannot get over the fact that this was our largest day of giving yet in our 10-year history of the Blast. There will be a lot of teens who will be helped and who will have a brighter Christmas because of you. Thank you, everyone!”
Due to the Coronavirus and the uncertainty surrounding our future, we have, unfortunately, made the hard decision to cancel the 5th annual Blockbusters at the Ballpark.

Mark your calendars now for 2021 as we will return next year.
Our mission to collaborate with other agencies and organizations to provide lifelong learning for our citizens while utilizing existing physical and human resources and not duplicating other efforts. We do this through our school-age programs, adult enrichment, volunteer opportunities, and various community events. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, you can make a monetary donation, sign up for AmazonSmile or Kroger donation, or a “wish list” donation, log on to our support page at https://www.commed.us/support/ for more information.
Any and all gifts make a difference!
We hope you all stay safe and healthy.
