BY JON CHAVEZ

As the economy slowly recovers, more businesses and their employees are increasing charitable contributions and volunteerism.

Food-donation drive offers free child care
BLADE STAFF

The charitable idea came suddenly to Valerie Bower one day: Provide a few hours of free child care for families on Saturdays so parents can prepare for the holidays, and ask for donations of nonperishable food items in return.

The food-drive campaign at Toddlers Schools - of which Ms. Bower is vice president of administration - is catching on slowly. Some community members who do not need child care also have donated food, all of which will be given to the Toledo SeaGate Foodbank, Ms. Bower said.

Child care typically costs $5 to $9 an hour at Toddlers School, depending on a child's age. And parents do not have to have their children enrolled at Toddlers School, which has seven locations in Toledo, Oregon, and Rossford, for them to receive child care in exchange for donated food, Ms. Bower said.
