At our Stamford daycare (and soon at our new Wilton daycare, opening in 2012!), we teach the importance of giving back. While we teach the children that it’s important to give back to the community and to those less fortunate all year long, it’s at this time of year – the season of giving – that the children can truly experience the joy it brings to give unto others.
This year, the staff and children at our Stamford daycare participated in a fundraising event to raise money for the nonprofit organization Person-to-Person in Darien, CT. The mission of Person-to-Person is to support the community through volunteer-based outreach including providing goods, resources and services (including emergency-related care) that may help to enrich the lives of those less fortunate.
Together, the Stamford daycare staff and children raised $1000 toward this wonderful organization! With this money, we bought tons of new toys and boardgames which we donated to the Person-to-Person Holiday Toy Store.
With the holiday season nearing its end, we hope that this is an experience that our Stamford daycare children will always remember. Even the tiniest hands can make a difference! Together, we will continue to spread joy and a helping hand to our community for years to come. With the opening of our new Wilton daycare location in 2012, we are overjoyed at the opportunity to expand our community support even further.
