We’re giving back! To celebrate the spirit of giving during the holiday season, this year Corinthian Events volunteered to participate in the Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) Children’s Actions Corps’ gift giving program, Winter Wish.
Dedicated to Robert F. Kennedy’s commitment to the poor and disadvantaged, the Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) Children’s Actions Corps provides a diverse range of programs and services across Massachusetts to help children and adolescents manage past hurts, develop self-esteem and become contributing members of society. Winter Wish is RFK’s annual gift program which strives to provide all 800 children in their care with at least one gift during the holidays.
With the hope of contributing to this impressive goal, each member of the Corinthian Events team sponsored a child. And thus we took the role of elves! We took a couple hours one morning and went on a shopping field trip to share our holiday cheer. Everyone fulfilled their child’s wish list from paint sets and art canvas for children exploring their artistic side, to yoga mats and Nalgene water bottles for adolescents who participate in RFK’s therapeutic yoga program. And if we do say so, we’re pretty awesome at being elves!
12 gifts are en route to the RFK Children’s Actions Corps headquarters in Boston this afternoon. We are very happy we could be a part of Winter Wish, support the incredible work of RFK and its staff, and most importantly, help brighten the holidays for children in their care across the state.
And while we were gift shopping, we got a little carried away…
….and came home to the office with a Corinthian Events tree!
