Local Businesses Lend a Helping Hand for United Way Day of Caring

September 12th, 2013 marked an important day for community partnerships across the Lehigh Valley. The United Way Day of Caring, in collaboration with the Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley, found 800 employees from area businesses to volunteer their time by completing service projects at local non-profit organizations, including Lehigh Valley Children's Centers (LVCC). LVCC welcomed a total of 14 amazing volunteers into three of our centers to tackle maintenance tasks. A big thank you to Lehigh UniversityKistler-O'Brien Fire Protectionand Aesculap, Inc. for donating both time and energy to help us make our facilities a brighter place for learning!

Lehigh University staff reminisced about childhood as they cleaned and organized toys at LVCC's Campus Center. Their efforts preserved LVCC's safe environment for children to play. 

 Kistler-O'Brien Fire Protection spruced up LVCC on Union Boulevard. While a few volunteers weeded the flower boxes outside, others painted our entrance and organized our storage closet inside.
The group from Aesculap, Inc. made huge headway painting LVCC at South Mountain's toddler/preschool gross motor area, as well as a staff bathroom. The walls are bright and cheery again!
