A donation of $5,278 will also go to Vogel Alcove. For 27 years, Vogel Alcove has provided free, quality child development services for Dallas' youngest victims of poverty: homeless children six weeks to five years old. Vogel Alcove is the only comprehensive early childhood education program in the city of Dallas whose primary focus is to provide free childcare and case management for children and their families referred by 21 local emergency shelters, domestic violence shelters, housing programs and organizations that serve homeless families.
The Primrose Children's Foundation supports initiatives that advocate for children in the greatest need. Funding for the Primrose Children's Foundation, which combines the fundraising efforts of Primrose schools to create a greater positive impact, is raised primarily through local Spring Fling events held annually at Primrose locations nationwide. These events provide Primrose families the opportunity to celebrate spring while giving back to their communities.

The organization has robust and impactful programs in the United States, such as child sponsorship and emergency preparedness, that provide children living in poverty with the skills and resources they need to succeed in school and in life.
