New York, June 29, 2018 – Earlier this week, members of the SPS team were found running around a playground and climbing jungle gyms as they spent their day with the children at the Henry Street Settlement. For the Summertime Arts & Crafts Event at the Early Childhood Center, SPS volunteers put their crafting skills to the test as they helped children make seascapes out of paper, glue, sand, and seashells, resulting in some marvelous works of nautical art. Some team members even put on their finest voice acting shows while reading stories aloud for the children to enjoy.
An SPS colleague reflected on the children’s animated energies, “it was a fun, worthwhile, and engaging experience. Children are always a joy to be around and it’s so nice to see that kids can find excitement in any circumstance.” Another team member reflected on the experience as, “worth taking the time out of the busy work day to do something meaningful – you’re playing a part in impacting these children’s lives.”
