Two volunteer groups combined to end the year with a little shimy shake at this fun event! Caring Cubs paired up with Young Athletes Cleveland at Baldwin Wallace this morning to make holiday cards and ornaments for the Providence House, a center that offers emergency shelter and care to children who are actively at risk for abuse and neglect due to family crisis. Young Athletes Cleveland brought the party with their certified instructor leading families through a half hour of fun exercise! Young Athletes is a developmentally appropriate play program targeted towards children with intellectual disabilities ages 2-7 years old. Through Young Athletes, volunteers introduce young children to the world of sport, with the goal of preparing them for Special Olympics sports training and competition when they get older. Volunteers from Baldwin Wallace kept the dance entertaining and were a huge help with set-up and clean-up at this event!
