The DANNY Center Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that serves as a centralized resource
for the community. It is comprised of a diverse group of individuals from various ethnic groups and backgrounds. We have a common goal which is to enrich the lives of the youth in our community. To serve as facilitators that provide education, career, and recreational opportunities for all youth who can benefit from them. When these programs do not exist in your area, we will collaborate with other nonprofit organizations within the community to offer them to our youth or we will create them ourselves.

Summer Breakfast & Lunch Program (Free)
For many kids, summertime means two things: fun and friends. But when school’s out, that also means that families can’t count on their kids eating meals at school, and already tight family food budgets have to be stretched even further. Parents also know that growing kids have big appetites. Our Summer Breakfast & Lunch Program will start on 2 June - 1 Aug 2014.
Breakfast is from 8:00 - 9:00 am & Lunch from 12:00 - 1:00 pm

Please do not call us just yet, continue to visit this site for more information.
