Positive Bright Start and Envista Federal Credit Union are pleased to announce that Positive Bright Start will receive the EnvistaCares Challenge gift of $2,500 from Envista as a match to the generosity of the community’s donations of $2,500.  In total Positive Bright Start received $5,000 in donations during the month of May. 

“We are so thankful for being chosen as the May EnvistaCares Challenge organization recipient. Your gift will allow our organization to hire additional therapists and fund childcare scholarships for Douglas County families in need,” said Emily Hilding, development director for Positive Bright Start.

Positive Bright Start offers preschool facilities, trauma-sensitive mental and behavioral health therapy, and resources to support families and childcare providers in Douglas County.

“We are honored to support Positive Bright Start, they truly care about the future of the children in our community; they create a safe space for children who may need additional help, to learn, grow and thrive emotionally and developmentally,” said Erika McNeill, engagement coordinator for Envista.
