Blackmore Early Childhood program receives $1,500 from HollyFrontier
HollyFrontier donates $1,500 to Blackmore Elementary's Early Childhood program.
The Early Childhood program at Blackmore Elementary received $1,500 from HollyFrontier's Tim Underwood Memorial Golf Tournament.

The generous donation was granted to purchase two Lakeshore Taxi Trikes and a portable basketball hoop, plus provide extra funds for anything else they may want or need.

The Early Childhood program serves pre-kindergarten aged students who have been identified as having a developmental delay in one or more of the following categories: communication, personal-social skills, motor skills, adaptive or self-help skills, or cognitive skills.

Early Childhood staff use play-based activities to help students strengthen these skills, and two major areas of focus during recess are gross motor skills and personal-social skills.

The tricycles currently being used were not designed for special needs or the number of students who use them on a daily basis, and have begun to wear out. The Lakeshore Taxi Trikes are made of high-quality materials, are designed to be used daily by 40+ students for multiple years, and have features that allow students who have physical disabilities or are unable to pedal a trike to ride them.

The portable basketball hoop can be used indoors or outside and will allow staff to work with students on skills such as taking turns and throwing a ball.

HollyFrontier will be hosting an allocations lunch to officially present the Early Childhood program with the funds on September 26.
