Thank You, Nancy Perry Day of Caring!

Thank You, Nancy Perry Day of Caring!

The Kansas Children's Discovery Center hosted a great group of volunteers today as a part of United Way of Greater Topeka's Nancy Perry Day of Caring. The Nancy Perry Day of Caring is an annual Topeka event that sends hundreds of volunteers out into the community to help different nonprofit organizations.

This year at the Kansas Children's Discovery Center, Nancy Perry volunteers installed a new bike rack out in front of the museum, cleaned Mobile Museum toys, mulched trails, weeded the stream and pond, restructured the sandbox, and more. With 15,000 square feet of indoor exhibits and 4.5 acres of Certified Outdoor Exploration Classroom, the volunteers stayed busy!

Volunteers came from Security Benefit and Westar Energy, both generous local businesses who are long-time supporters of the Discovery Center.

Kansas Children’s Discovery Center offers high-quality interactive experiences to inspire a lifelong love of learning for every child. Volunteers aid our mission by creating these memorable experiences for every family who walks through our doors. Volunteers engage children in fun educational activities, provide customer service at our front desk, pitch in at special events, maintain our outdoor space, help facilitate field trips, celebrate birthdays, and keep exhibit areas ready for play. If your organization is interested in a fun volunteer day at the Kansas Children's Discovery Center, call our volunteer coordinator at (785) 783-8300. We have indoor and outdoor projects for any size group.

Thank You, Nancy Perry Day of Caring!
