Girard Equipment proudly sponsors Tuesday’s Children for a fun filled day of celebration in New York City.
LINDEN, NJ, January 7, 2011— Girard Equipment, USA is proud to announce that they will be sponsoring a day of celebration for the Tuesday’s Children organization. The day of celebration will take place on January 22nd, 2011 in New York City at Chelsea Piers.
The celebration comes in recognition of National Mentoring Month. The Tuesday’s Children Organization has made a long-term commitment to help those who were directly impacted by the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, as well as others impacted by global terrorism. The organization has partnered with recognized leaders in the fields of child development and family advocacy to develop an innovative platform of programs designed to address the ongoing needs of thousands of children coping with this abominable tragedy.
“It is truly our privilege to work with an organization like Tuesday’s Children,” said Jody Sause, Marketing Manager of Girard Equipment. “We believe that the National Mentoring Month Celebration will be a fun day for all involved and we are glad to help, even in a small way, to make this a special day for the children and families that this fine charity supports.”
The Tuesday’s Children Mentoring Program continues to be one of the most impactful programs offered by creating life long friendships that help to develop coping skills and build strengths through quality, consistent and fun times together. Children, six to sixteen years old, that lost a loved one on September 11th, 2001, are paired with specially trained adult role models who can offer new opportunities and provide guidance. The program serves children in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.
Mentors and children are matched based upon location, common interests, and similar personality traits. Each volunteer meets with the child twice a month, either in the child’s home or within their community, for one on one visits, which may include playing basketball in the backyard, helping with homework, playing board games, taking in sporting/cultural events, volunteering together for community service projects or just providing a shoulder to lean on. With the support of Tuesday’s Children, matches participate in group outings to build community and share new experiences.
The fun-filled day will kick off at 300 New York with a pizza and bowling party.
