About KIDS Korner
Thursday, August 19 marks YWCA Central AL’s 14th year for their KIDS Korner event, and they couldn’t be more excited. Why, you ask?
Because it’s all about helping local children and families. All proceeds from KIDS Korner benefit YWCA Central AL’s Child Development Center and the children it serves each and every day.
“We are so grateful to the community for their continued support of the KIDS Korner event, now in its 14th year. This event is crucial in raising funds to support the kids in our Child Development Center, and this year we are so excited about the new look of the event.
KIDS Korner is one of our largest sources of support for the CDC, so we hope to see both familiar and new faces as we celebrate with a fireworks finale!”Dr. LaRhonda Magras, CEO, YWCA Central AL

The answer is social justice. YWCA Central AL is dedicated to:
- Eliminating racism
- Empowering women
