Staff from the Tyler office spread the word about MCH Family Outreach services while supporting a great family cause at the annual Day for Kids on Saturday, Sept. 20. The event, hosted by the Boys and Girls Club of Tyler, was held at Bergfeld Park in Tyler.
Day for Kids is meant to encourage families to spend time together. Throughout the day, guests enjoy games and activities for children and learn about community resources. The event not only encourages families to spend more time together but also educates them about a wide variety of services available in the area.
“Day for Kids was a huge success,” said Edith Wineland, regional administrative assistant. “It was refreshing to see all the businesses and community come together for the kids. I believe we opened some minds to the idea of providing an even safer, and healthier environment for much deserving children.”
While some of the Tyler Outreach office played bean bag toss with the children, other staff members talked with parents about the services offered by MCH. The event was attended by approximately 500 people. The president of the Boys and Girls Club is Kevin East, a foster parent with MCH.
