Culver's Cares Day raises funds for local daycare

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - A Quincy daycare is back in financial trouble. That's why it's teaming up with a local restaurant to raise money.

As part of the Culver's Cares Day, 10 percent of all proceeds from a four hour period went to the Walter Hammond Daycare.
Daycare officials say overhead costs are becoming too much and if enrollment doesn't increase soon, the daycare could be forced to close its doors again. Walter Hammond reopened in September 2012, after being closed for two years because of a drop in state funding.

"We feel like we're needed in the community at this time, and we're doing everything possible to keep Walter Hammond open," Board President, Jeanetta Green said.

Officials hope to enroll about 30 more children in the program. The daycare is currently accepting applications for kids ages two to 12 years old.
