Each month, Chick-Fil-A partners with Southern Wheels 'n Motion to host a charity classic car "Cruise-in" to benefit a local nonprofit group in the area.

This month, the Child Development Center was the beneficiary of all the proceeds raised at the cruise-in.

According to CDC officials, the cruise-in brought $960 to the center for its programs and assistance.

About the Child Development Center:

Founded in 1972, the Child Development Center (CDC) family-based early intervention program worked with thousands of families in South Central Tennessee, connecting them with community resources and providing year-round early intervention services for children with developmental delays or disabilities. Services are available to children from birth to 3 years old at no cost to families.

CDC teachers work with children in their homes or child care programs, providing hands-on activities that build on the child's strengths, helping them reach their fullest potential. Goals and activities are based on the individual family's concerns and daily routines. Parent training offers information, skills and activities to families, which empower them to take a more active role in helping their child reach developmental milestones.

Every six months children's developmental skills and the family-centered goals are reviewed by TEIS. Modifications to services are made as necessary to ensure the program continues to meet the changing needs of the child and family. The CDC is a nonprofit agency with a majority of funding provided through grants from the Tennessee Department of Education.

Other sources of funding include the United Way, city and county governments, civic clubs, faith-based organizations, local businesses and individual contributors.
