Chambliss Center For Children Offers Specialty License Plates

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Chambliss Center for Children has started taking orders for their own specialty license plates.   

Each plate provides a sustainable income source while broadening community awareness that the center is "Growing Young Lives 24/7/365” in the community.  The license plate design has yet to be finalized, but will feature the tree logo. 

The agency will receive 50 percent of the funds collected after the production cost of the plate.  That income is repeated every year the plate is renewed. To reserve a Chambliss Center for Children license plate, visit their website and click on the News & Events page. 

Chambliss Center for Children is a local non-profit organization that has been in the community for more than 140 years, caring for children 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year. The organization has two programs: an early childhood education and a childcare center that charges parents on a sliding scale. The center also acts as the region’s only group home for children in state custody. In addition to these two on-site programs, the organization operates a network of twelve off-site centers and classrooms throughout the city. For more information visit
