We are proud to be this years recipient of the Attleboro Elks Blessing of the Bikes Fundraising Event.
The Blessing was held on May 11. Members of the Elks and the Council for Children volunteered to help the riders head out on their journey. After the ride, lunch was served to the riders.
Sincerest thanks to the Attleboro Elks for selecting the Council for Children to receive your generous donation.

Attleboro Area Council for Children,
We are an all volunteer run, non-profit organization that raises
our own funds to provide programs and services to children and families
residing in Attleboro,
North Attleboro, Mansfield, Norton, Rehoboth, Seekonk and
GoodShop, Gumdrop & Amazon Smile
Support the Council for Children
every time you search the internet or shop online.
Born in 1972 and funded by the newly created state Office for
Children, the Attleboro Area Council for Children has made its mission to
fill children's needs in our community. When state funds dried up in
1991, the Council decided to "go it alone" and incorporate as a non-profit
and run all its programs with volunteers.
Attleboro Area Council for Children serves as volunteer advocates for
children. Where there is a need for service we attempt to find one. Volunteers
are always needed to make the work lighter. Sometimes, community members come
to the Council because they have discovered that there is a serious gap in a
service for children and families. The Council helps concerned groups find a
way to make a difference in a child’s life.
If you live or work in the Attleboro, North Attleboro, Mansfield, Norton,
Rehoboth, Seekonk, or Plainville - you can join us! We encourage families and children to
volunteer together on some of our special projects. Clubs and organizations
looking for projects that benefit children should contact us to see how we can
help your organization.
