A Week of Wonderful at Arizonans for Children

Sometimes I just can't believe all the good that happens at Arizonans for Children.  Every day the volunteers, parents, parent aids, kids, staff and donors just simply amaze me and this week has been no exception!

Our Saturday STEM Pi-oneer class started with our volunteer Chrysta giving an engaging presentation on "Healthy Brains", then Christian taught the kids how to write a program to build block walls in the Raspberry Pi version of the game Minecraft. 

We finished the day off with Paul with PEM talking to the kids about their future and the life they see for themselves.  Honestly I learned something for each of our presenters!  Paul told the kids about an acronym - IDEAL.  Want to know what it stands for?  email az4children.laura@gmail.com


 



On Saturday 10/20 at the Arizonans for Children Mesa Visitation Center Volunteer Alec and partners held a Fall Festival for the families on site.  The pictures look like it was a lot of fun!




Our Little Library is almost done!  Mentor Laurie and her mentee spent Saturday morning working to finish it up.  How beautiful is it?  I can;t wait until we are able to "plant" the library!



Arizonans for Children has some very exciting events coming up:

SAVE THE DATE! Healthy Mason Jar Toy Drive is set for Saturday 11/17 at the Mesa Visitation Center.  You will not believe the generosity of Healthy Mason Jar.....bring a new, unwrapped toy for a child in foster care and get a meal for FREE! 



SAVE THE DATE! On Sunday December 2 The Arizona Grand Resort is holding a golf tournament toy drive.  Sponsorship opportunities available.
Stay tuned for more information and details.




In case you missed it, take a look at this cuteness overload!  This week on Wednesday starts the Arizonans for Children Costume Closet.
