Brookhaven College and Dallas Filipino Lions Club at ChildCareGroup

September 11, 2013

Lions Club and Brookhaven at Landauer 2013

Children in ChildCareGroup’s early care and education programs are getting a healthy start, with the help of volunteers from Brookhaven College and and Dallas Filipino Lions Club!

At the beginning of each school year, ChildCareGroup provides health screenings to all of the 3-5 year old children who attend our Center Programs. We screen heights, weights, blood pressure, hemoglobin, hearing and vision.

For the second year, we are excited to partner with the Brookhaven College Nursing Program, who not only assisted with the screenings but also provided entertaining educational presentations to the children.

Thank you to Crystal Garzda, Tracey Hobbs and Joyce Swegle, the nursing faculty, and more than 30 nursing students for volunteering their time and nursing skills!

This year, for the first time, we are excited to partner with Dallas Filipino Lions Club Foundation, who provided the free vision screenings for our children using a new breakthrough vision screening device called ‘SPOT’ by Pediavision. SPOT can assess a child’s vision with unmatched speed, accuracy and deliver immediate comprehensive results.

ChildCareGroup’s Lori Carey honored at United Way Volunteer Luncheon

June 19, 2013

Lori Carey, Community Engagement Manager at ChildCareGroup, received the Advocate Volunteer Award, which honors a volunteer who lends a voice to community issues and engages others in United Way’s work.

Carey relentlessly hits the campaign trail with United Way staff, sharing compelling stories about how every donation impacts the community and changes lives in North Texas forever. For several years, she has been the most prolific United Way service provider volunteer at speaking engagements.

“I talk about how we work with our clients and how the United 2020 community goals fall within what we do,” she said. “I tell them stories of what goes on during a day for us, how we serve our clients and how we could not do that without the support of United Way.”

Carey also welcomes United Way volunteers at ChildCareGroup. She feels rewarded every time she glances out the window and sees a young client interacting with a volunteer.

“A lot of our kids don’t have a male figure in their lives,” Carey says. “I might see one of our kids running around with one of our guy volunteers, acting silly together. That makes me really happy.”

CONGRATULATIONS LORI!
We are so proud of you and this much-deserved honor.

Students from the Eres School participate in human development and leadership programs to grow as individuals and increase their service to the community. As part of their course service project, the Eres School participants collected toys for students at our Landauer ChildCareGroup Center and learned about ChildCareGroup’s early childhood programs in the community.
