A Message to New
and Old Friends
of Cedar Hill CDC

Many of our long term friends of the CDC are frequent donors, who also participate in our fundraising events that support our nuturing and enriching After-School and Summer Camp Programs.

These programs for our kids-in-need play a major role in leveling the playing field with their more affluent classmates.

We provide the one-on-one attention, close-knit mentoring, computer and performing arts skills that build self esteem, confidence and the desire to succeed and excel.

Unlike the traditional school, with a new teacher each year, our staff, volunteers and mentors interact daily with our students over a period of years.

These are years of a secure environment with the rich opportunity to grow into the leaders of the next generation on an equal footing with their peers.

Please consider making a donation of any amount you are able to invest in a child's future, by clicking the donate button below to pay by credit card or PayPal on the secure PayPal system.

You will receive a receipt by email for your tax deductible donation to the non-profit Cedar Hill CDC. Our Tax ID Number is: 22-3712958. Thank you.

2012-2009 Videos and Slideshows

We invite all of our donors and event attendees to join us in our St. Johns Episcopal Church rented home on 226 Cornelia Street, any afternoon between 3:00pm and 6:00pm on days when the Boonton schools are open. Come to see our high-spirited kids and programs in action, and receive the heartfelt thanks of our grateful and very appreciative children.
