MetroCast Community Foundation gives back to the community with its involvement in Spaulding Youth Center’s field day activitiesJune 27, 2013
MetroCast Community Foundation showed their support of the students at Spaulding Youth Center by volunteering at their field day event. Regional Manager NH/ME Moira Campbell recruited her daughter Nicole Gagnon and three MetroCast employees, Wendy Mills, Dianne Luneau and Donna Cannon to run some of the activities which involved a lot of cool water on a steamy hot day. Campbell commented, “The MetroCast Community Foundation has been helping with Spaulding’s field day for several years. We always look forward to hearing the delightful giggles and getting soaking wet with the exuberant kids. We are pleased to support such an amazing facility that brings about extraordinary results for children and youth with multiple challenges.”
The students loved the impressive looking medals they received from MetroCast Foundation for participating in the event and devoured their delicious ice-cream sundae creations also provided by MetroCast. The foundation also presented a check that will directly benefit the students at Spaulding. Students pondered how to thank MetroCast employees and decided to make a giant three-dimensional card replicating an old fashioned television set. All the students showed their appreciation by signing the screen and and when presented gave them a rousing cheer. Campbell assured the kids that she would place it in the lobby at MetroCast.
Spaulding Youth Center leverages professional expertise to help young people with autism or other developmental and/or behavioral challenges learn the academic and life skills needed to be successful in their homes, schools and communities.
