Free to Grow at Home

With recreational activities such as swimming, camp and sports being cancelled during the summer months due to COVID-19, we were committed to find ways to keep children thinking, creating and moving. The value of play for children, especially during times of stress and uncertainty, cannot be underestimated.

Our Free to Grow at Home initiative worked in partnership with other local organization and businesses to provide recreational equipment, supplies and resources so that kids at home could continute the most important work of childhood - play! We were able to provide 935 Recreational Kits to local children during the summer months. 

Free to Grow at Home recreational kits were designed to keep children's hands and feet moving, spark their imagination, and support their learning and development.
