Bright Beginnings hopes to open a new child care center in 2017, and has raised more than $5.8 million for the project.

Via Facebook:

“This morning, Washington Wizards point guard, John Wall surprised our organization and BBI Executive Director, Dr. Betty Jo Gaines with a generous donation of $400,000. This phenomenal contribution will significantly impact the development of Bright Beginnings’ second child development center at 3418 4th Street SE in Ward 8.

Proudly displayed at the new BBI center will be the John Wall, Wall of Achievement, highlighting the everyday moments of greatness Bright Beginnings students accomplish. Bright Beginnings will also name a classroom in Mr. Wall’s honor.”
