Thank you Ralph Lauren for helping us celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr Day of Service! MLK, JR. Day of Service is “a day on, not a day off.” On January 18th, a few employees from Ralph Lauren joined Littles in a virtual Big for a Day engagement. These volunteers served to support Littles; to provide a connection and time away from their studies. Smiles, laughter, and open discussions filled the virtual space. One group chatted about sports, their best pranks, and career ambitions. Another match found themselves lost in the talk of travel, adventure, and exploring. Games were played! And some dance moves busted out too!
Mentoring means our Littles will not have to face the added barriers brought on by this pandemic alone, positive engagement builds confidence and resilience. This time, that was shared between volunteers and Littles, provided an outlet during an ever-changing world.
