15th Annual Children’s day Celebration

Centro Cultural of Washington County and the Cornelius Public Library present the 15th Annual Children’s Day Celebration to be held Saturday, April 25, 2015 at Echo Shaw Elementary School in Cornelius (914 S. Linden Street).

The theme for this year is, “Healthy Kids, Healthy Minds”

This free family event includes a talent show, music, dancing, singing, clowns, food (free hot dogs), games, arts and crafts, information booths, activities, and more. In addition, there will be a soccer tournament hosted by Hillsboro Futsal & Soccer Academy. Last year we had over 4,000 people attend from all parts of Washington County. The purpose of the Children’s Day celebration is to bring families together, to build a united community, and to strengthen and enrich our diverse Washington County community. 
Many generous supporters of our community have made this celebration possible.

United Way Logo

We are excited to announce that Centro Cultural has been chosen by United Way of the Columbia-Willamette to participate in a major regional effort to break the cycle of childhood poverty.

Centro Cultural will join with 29 other non-profits in Washington, Clackamas, Clark and Multnomah Counties in a collaborative 3-year “Community Strengthening” effort. All the participating non-profits serve low income and culturally specific communities across the metropolitan area.

Each non-profit will be awarded up to $50,000 per year to complete the critical work of improving outcomes for low-income families and their children.


Christmas Holiday

Here at Centro Cultural those words and the sentiment behind the
meaning is what matters most. Generosity can be challenging, especially
for many families during these difficult economic times. When we have little
for ourselves, we find it hard to justify giving to others, but giving doesn't
necessarily require donating money to those less privileged than
ourselves. [Read More...]
