Employee Play Dates

Oct 19, 2012

Children love to have play dates – a time for their friends to visit and spend time having fun together.

But for those in shelters following abuse,  neglect or abandonment, it can be a sad time when visitors are few and far between.

Amway employees in southern California have been taking time to make sure children at the Orangewood Children’s Home have regular visits from their friends.

Last month, a group of volunteers spent time with children at Orangewood. They even brought earthquake preparedness kits and held an earthquake drill to teach them emergency skills.

And earlier this summer, they helped to host a family picnic and carnival over the weekend for Orangewood foster families, which included more than 600 kids and adults with food, games prizes and fun activities.

When is the last time you offered your time to play?
