Who: Ten passionate Assurance employees spent their Wednesday volunteering at GiGi’s Playhouse. Assurance volunteers didn’t spend the day playing at the playhouse, but instead working hard for a noble cause. GiGi’s Playhouse is the only nationwide network of Down syndrome achievement centers. The nonprofit provides free, results-driven programs for individuals of all ages, families and communities.

What: Assurance staff spent the day at GiGi’s Playhouse: 

  • Washing every single toy— down to the last Lego
  • Organizing 500 books on the shelves
  • Organizing all cabinets in the playhouse
  • Scooping gelato to fill 930 cups to sell at Schaumburg’s SeptemberFest

When: Wednesday, August 31, 2016
