On Friday, June 7, Birmingham Green team members and residents donated $500 worth of toys and supplies to The Arc of Greater Prince William’s Muriel Humphrey Childcare Center in Dale City.
In May, Birmingham Green team members and residents participated in Comcast Cares Day. They joined Comcast, Leadership Prince William, and the Arc of Greater Prince William for one of the largest days of volunteerism in Northern Virginia. Over 300 volunteers from the area participated to help the special needs children, adults, and families the Arc of Greater Prince William serves.
The items purchased were taken from a wish list The Arc staff had put together prior to Comcast Cares Day. Many of the items had already been purchased. But, seeing an opportunity to continue the excitement and further involve residents and staff, Birmingham Green CEO Denise Chadwick Wright decided to purchase a few of the larger remaining items. Wright was a part of the Leadership Prince William Class of 2019, the group responsible for planning and organizing the large-scale day of service.
“We were so pleasantly surprised to see Birmingham Green residents and staff out volunteering at Comcast Cares Day,” said Leadership Prince William Executive Director Andrea Money. “This project was an eye-opener for me in terms of the network of not-for-profit organizations in our community serving those with special needs, from birth into their geriatric years. It’s not just that they provide so many great services, but that they support one another so generously. This gift from Birmingham Green to The Arc is just one example of that connectivity and care.”
