Teaching the Importance of Giving Back
Family get-togethers, crowded shopping malls, soaring wrapping paper, and one ton of confetti released over Time Square each year as the ball drops. This is what comes to mind when thinking about the holiday season.
For Play & Learn, the meaning of the holiday season is more. Throughout the year, our children are taught the meaning of giving and sharing with others. Teaching children this important lesson builds character and teaches empathy, kindness, consideration and generosity.
During this past holiday season, more than one thousand families at our eleven Play & Learn centers reached deep into their hearts and supported a variety of charities, teaching their children the importance of helping others.
The organizations that Play & Learn supported include Bethany Christian Services and DHS, Cradles to Crayons, the Ronald McDonald House, Daily Bread Community Pantry, Wordsworth Academy, Scholastic Book Club, the Open Door Ministry and St. Mary’s Franciscan.
We are proud of our children and families for helping other children and families enjoy their holiday season.
