Dance Kids of Monterey
We heartily support Dance Kids of Monterey - Here's a bit about them. Click their website below to learn more!
They are a non-profit organization that gives children a better understanding of their community and the world through the arts with dance, music and theatre opportunities. "Our performing arts programs allow our participants to discover their own voice, to grow in confidence, and to develop empathy and ethical insight-to aspire, accept disappointments, to sometimes fail, and to always keep trying."
Mission Statement
"To give witness to faith in Christ and evidence of goodwill and caring by donating all store proceeds, less operating expenses to organizations that provide for the physical, emotional, educational and social needs of the community."
Yellow Brick Road was
conceived from the
very heart of
Carmel Presbyterian Church over
30 years ago.
 The Yellow Brick Road is
a 501 (c)3 Organization.
Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed.
