YAKIMA, Wa - ESD 105 wants the East Yakima community to get involved in the early learning initiative for that area.
Eight volunteers from East Yakima are knocking doors, talking to parents with young children about their childcare needs.
The goal is to survey 350 parents.
The information these volunteers gather from the surveys will be used to form the plans for the Early Learning Center in East Yakima.
They'll also be submitted in a report to the Gates Foundation next year. Right now, they're beginning the application process for a $90,000,000 grant from the Gates Foundation.
