Who: About 20 Assurance employees volunteered at Easter Seals for the first time. Easter Seals offers help, hope and answers to more than a million children and adults with disabilities and special needs.
What: Assurance staff spent the day:
- Playing outdoor games with children
- Participating in indoor activities with toddlers and infants who spend most of their days at the facility
- Pulling weeds and other outdoor landscaping
- Cleaning children’s classrooms, including toys and chairs
Assurance was also given a tour by a young woman with Cerebral Palsy who grew up at Easter Seals and now works there part-time to give back to an organization that has given her so much. Her story inspired Assurance staff members leaving a lasting impression of the organization.
