Mary Lee Johnston Community Learning Center

What we do:

Mary Lee Johnston Community Learning Center (MLJCLC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving children from six weeks to kindergarten age and their families since 1934. 

Why we’re great:

Ensuring children have access to high quality and affordable programs helps them prepare for school and succeed later in life while strengthening parents’ abilities to go to work, advance their career, and increase their earning potential.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

We provide tuition assistance to 81% of our families. A safe, nurturing environment that enriches a child’s development is critical to working families and is one of the best investments we can make. This benefits our entire community.

List of volunteer and in-kind needs

We need volunteers of all kinds. Material needs include wipes, Kleenex, diapers, and art supplies.
