October 2019 Newsletter
BIG KUDOS to the 37 employees at Fortive/Pacific Scientific EMC for choosing Chamberlain’s for their annual “Day of Caring” volunteer work! This amazing, hard-working group completed SIX projects around campus.
1) They cleaned out and reorganized the four carport storage units along with building the new metal shelving. 2) Another group installed new garden beds between two cottages for the kids to start digging in the dirt. Special thanks to Bob Bettencourt for building the garden beds before this big day! 3) A third group did a HUGE clean up around the Tranquility Garden and Wellness Center! 4) The fourth group cleaned out the athletic equipment shed and reorganized it. 5) Lastly a couple of ladies cleaned and reorganized the Wellness Center kitchen cabinets including lining the shelves and drawers! 6) Another group hung pictures in the Annex where new children first come and have therapy sessions.
Thanks to Fred Sanchez for organizing this whole project and to your team leaders Brian and Hilda! THANK YOU to all for spending your day with us and making Chamberlain’s better for the kids and staff. We really appreciate your support. #FORTIVECARES #PACSCIEMCGIVESBACK
