Icon Blue Volunteers at Children’s Institute, Inc.
Icon Blue Participates in Team Honda’s Week of Service
On Friday, June 15th, members of the Icon Blue team went down to Children’s Institute, Inc. (CII) to help teachers clean their classrooms after a busy school year. Each year, as part of Team Honda’s Week of Service, Icon Blue takes a workday and assists an organization dedicated to community service.
“Icon Blue takes corporate citizenship seriously. We make it a priority to take some time each year to give back to the Los Angeles community and are thrilled to support CII in their mission.”
-Eden McClellan, President and COO of Icon Blue
In recent years, Icon Blue has focused it’s community volunteer efforts on projects that benefit children. This is the second year that the company has worked with Children’s Institute, Inc, this time at the Western Avenue location. While last year we were helping to kick off a summer program, this year we helped pre-K teachers clean their classrooms in preparation for another school year.
The team broke into two shifts, one morning and one afternoon. From cleaning tables and cubbies to scrubbing toys, it was gratifying to be able to see immediate results. This CII location focuses on early education, setting pre-K students up with the skills they will need for success when they reach elementary school.
“Our goal at CII Head Start is to provide young children with the early learning experiences that will help them gain the skills, knowledge, and attitudes they need in order to be successful in school and become lifelong learners.”
-Dalila Rodriguez, ECS Education Manager
We are grateful to Children’s Institute, Inc. not only for letting our team participate in their work, but for all the work they do to better the lives of children in Los Angeles. If your company is looking to get involved, Children’s Institute, Inc. has numerous opportunities for volunteer participation throughout the year.
