adhesive had the opportunity to volunteer at the East Valley Child Crisis Center. We had a great turnout with every employee volunteering to spend time with kids in need. The East Valley Child Crisis Center has helped over 13,235 children and families since they opened their doors in 1981. The Child Crisis Center has a wide range of services. The Child Crisis Center is committed to preventing child abuse and neglect. They accomplish this by supporting and strengthening families through education and intervention, by providing a safe environment for children to heal, and by recruiting, training and supporting foster and adoptive families
We were able to spend time in the emergency shelter with children between the ages of 0-11 that have experienced abuse, abandonment or neglect. We provided and served the kids their morning snack, we also played board games with the older kids and helped the toddlers identify the animals that were in their animal crackers. We got the opportunity to see all these kids smile, laugh and feel loved by each of us. After serving the kids their morning snack, we were able to organize and clean the playgrounds that the kids play on.
It was very rewarding for all of us to work with kids in need. We are thankful that we had the opportunity to interact with the kids and look forward to the next time we get to spend time with the kids.
