Children's Village is collecting new and gently used furniture, lamps, rugs and pictures to be sold on June 11th to raise funds for the direct care of the children that live at the Village.Dr. Anne C. Fox-Clarkson, who was an elementary school principal in Coeur d'Alene, ID, founded the Children's Village, Inc. In 1983, Dr. Fox-Clarkson made a promise to a brother and sister that she would build them a home, as they had suffered child abuse. Two parents from her school agreed to help her, Carol Rankin and Kathy Curran. With the wonderful support of many volunteers and businesses, the 15 acres were purchased and two homes were built.On a daily basis, the Village can serve up to 22 residents. Healing children has been the Village goal since the doors opened in 1990.
