Sikorsky Takes the Heat for the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley
After months of planning, Corporate Volunteer Council member, Sikorsky Financial visited the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley yesterday to help out and play with the kids as part of United Way’s Day of Action. The Day of Action is a date set by United Way to encourage people to give back to their community in any way they can. Every day should be a Day of Action because there is never a lack of need in the world.
Despite the heat, many of the Sikorsky volunteers still decided to work outside fixing up the volleyball courts and the putting green, as well as weeding the play area. The plan had originally been to help set up the new swing set the Boys & Girls Club had received but with the extreme temperatures it was decided that they would come back and take on the 8 hour project with Executive Director of Boys & Girls Club, Jack Ribas another time.
Some of the other volunteers stayed inside and played dodge ball and basketball with the kids. They also helped the children make puzzle pieces that reflect their personalities, while making pieces of their own as well. These puzzle pieces were put together at the end of the day, symbolizing that though we are all unique, we can come together and Live United.
