Back in August, Fisher-Price employees spent the day at the Buffalo Science Museum with children from Read to Succeed Buffalo's CARE Child Care as part of the United Way's annual Day of Caring.
As an additional holiday surprise, Fisher-Price donated age appropriate toys for distribution among the licensed child care sites participating in Read to Succeed Buffalo's literacy intervention/quality improvement program - CARE Child Care. The toys are designed to meet the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of children, serving as developmental tools paired with play and whimsy. The toy donation aligns perfectly with the core purpose of Fisher-Price - to enrich the lives of young families. Headquartered in East Aurora for more than 84 years, the early childhood development company enjoys giving back to the community in which its employees work, play and raise their families.
As a resource to parents, Fisher-Price has also established a website that suggests both toys and activities that are age-appropriate and support child development. To visit this page, look under the Parent Resources tab at www.readtosucceedbuffalo.org.
Thanks again to all our partners in the 2014 Day of Caring!
