Making an impact in our community

October 14, 2015

Our Arlington employees spent a warm afternoon in Texas putting healthy snack packs together for children in need in the Dallas area. Together, we were able to make a considerable impact in our community. These packs support early health education programs through UnitedWay and the ChildCareGroup. The children who will receive these packs are from low income and poverty level families in our community, during the day the children are provided education and care at the ChildCareGroup centers, these packs are often the only source of food the children receive after leaving child care programs. We’re very proud of our team for coming out and helping make a difference!
