Sierra Nevada Facilities Assistant Brian Carr secures the top of the door frame to new metal studs.
A while back we made a call out for help with replacing the rotted roll up door to the storage box in out PreSchool Program at Elm Street. Our call was answered by the folks at Sierra Nevada, just a stones throw across Elm Street from our Center. They donated a metal door and materials and Brian Carr, an Assistant in Sierra Nevada Facilities and Ed Finney, a Sierra Nevada Contractor, came over this last Friday and spent a few hours installing it.
Here are some pictures of Brian and Ed installing the materials Big thank you to them both for following through on this project and Sierra Nevada for donating the time and materials!!!
The hardie board wall panel installed will allow for future tile art work projects done by the kids - we hope.

Like so many other social service organizations serving low income and special needs populations funding for our facilities maintenance has been slashed.
PROJECT 1: est. cost: $875.00
Chico Community Children’s Center (CCCC) is seeking a financial sponsor for replacing the broken door on a storage shed at 22nd andElm Street,Chico. This shed is used by our Pre School Program to store toys, physical activities equipment, and learning aids.
We plan to remove this roll up door and replace it with a framed in a 36’wide exterior door and replace or upgrade the short ramp.
Cost estimate for the project is $875.00.
The storage unit is a sturdy truck box but the plywood door panel sections have rotted out, collapsing the door. The door is currently un-usable and unfixable and a safety hazard for both teachers and students. The rest of the storage unit is in good shape.
PROJECT 2: Estimated Cost: $2000.00
We would like to replace this with a truck box or storage unit with a normal size and lockable door.
This shed, also in the Pre School Yard, needs to be replaced. The roof is rusted and bent and leaks. The doors are not securable. The sides are also bent in.
Chico Community Children’s Center is partnering up with CSUC Center for Nutrition and Activity Promotion. One goal is to help prevent obesity through the implementation of policy and environmental change strategies of the local or state obesity prevention plan, with the hopes to adopt physical activity policies to enhance quality and quantity of physical activity instruction, increase opportunities for physical activity and create environmental changes to promote activity.
We also will be working with children and parents on gaining knowledge about nutrition, and making healthy eating choices. Children will increase awareness and understanding of their physical activity and gain skills to enhance physical activity and making healthy eating choices. Different recipe ideas that include seasonal fruits and vegetables, handouts with the importance of healthy eating for children and different ideas on how to get children to be active at home will be available to the parents.
