Last Friday, the Blind Children’s Center held its annual Beeping Egg Hunt. This tradition was developed by volunteers from the AT&T Pacific Pioneers more than 30 years ago in Los Angeles, and has spread to other states from Arizona and Oklahoma to New York and Virginia.
Thanks to Performance Team Freight Systems Inc., each student received a basket with a stuffed animal and story book when they presented their beeping egg to our bunny (occupational therapist in a bunny suit).
Students as well as friends and family were able to experience a petting zoo of small animals thanks to the Center’s longtime friend Janis Lake and her family.
Special guests were in abundance, including numerous members of LAPD’s Eagle and Badge Foundation, scores of officers from LAPD’s Rampart Division and women from the UCLA Delta Gamma chapter who all assisted the students in the egg hunt. Leadership from the Kiwanis Club of Santa Monica was also on-hand to present a generous grant to the school.
The Blind Children’s Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1938 by Southern California Delta Gamma alumnae. The Center’s mission is to foster the development and education of children—birth through second grade—who are visually impaired in an inclusive, family-focused setting.
