MEDFORD, Ore. — Just a few days after announcing it needed to raise thousands of dollars to keep its doors open, a children’s learning center in Medford has met one of its goals.
“Kid Time” had previously announced that it would have to close its doors unless it raised $100,000. It set a goal of raising $25,000 by the end of January, and now the executive director says the organization has already hit that initial goal.
She says most of the $25,000 came in during the first 2 days after the announcement.
“The most exciting part about the fact that we raised our first $25,000 goal so quickly is that the donors came from people who had never even been in our building, for the most part,” said Kid Time Executive Director Sunny Spicer.
The organization says it still needs to raise an additional $75,000 by the middle of March in order to stay open.
