The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center got a helping hand from a great group of volunteers from Washburn University recently.
Students from Washburn volunteered this past weekend at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center as part of Washburn’s Big Event, a university-wide volunteer day.
The students arrived at the Discovery Center on the morning of Saturday, April 30, and cleaned and cleared out paths in the Discovery Center’s Certified “Nature Explore” Outdoor Classroom.
This year marked the 10th anniversary of the Big Event, which in 2011 merged with a similar project called “Bods in the Street” that began in 1995.
The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center offers high-quality, interactive experiences to inspire a lifelong love of learning for every child. Volunteers support our mission by creating these memorable experiences for every family that walks through our doors. Volunteers engage children in fun, educational activities, pitch in at special events, maintain our outdoor space 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, Washburn University students!
