South Riding, VA (Vocus) August 15, 2010
It’s almost impossible these days to find a family where only one parent works to support the household. Devotion to Children (DTC), http://www.devotiontochildren.org, a volunteer run non-profit works to provide affordable child care solutions for Northern Virginia families with children under the age of six.
Jen Sterling, Owner of Red Thinking, a Northern Virginia-based marketing and branding firm has recently been appointed to the DTC Advisory Board and will be co-chairing the group’s annual fundraising gala.
“Quality, affordable childcare is as important to families as a roof over their heads, food on the table, and healthcare when they are sick,” says Jen Sterling. “Many parents struggle with the dilemma of not being able make enough money to pay for childcare and not having enough money to live. As a result, mothers often stay home to care for their children but are then forced into poverty.”
As an Advisory Board Member, Sterling will work with the Board to raise awareness and funding for the group’s programs. Sterling will be co-chairing the popular annual fundraising gala “Red, Heart & Soul.”
“As a mother, I personally understand the need for quality childcare. I’ve been fortunate to be able to continue to work and contribute to my family and further my career. Working with Devotion to Children is my way of reaching back and helping others succeed for themselves and for their children,” say Sterling.
