THANK YOU, ERIC!
On behalf of McKinley Children's Center s Board of Directors and most importantly the kids, I would like to express our appreciation to 'Eric Singer' for his recent visit to our center.
The children that live in the residential program come to McKinley because they have been victims of abuse, abandonment and neglect. The kids in our Canyon View School have learning disabilities, emotional disturbances, behavior disorders, Autistic Spectrum disorder and other health impairments that have not been successful in a more traditional school setting. Eric Singer took the time to stop by for a few hours and visit with these children.
It was amazing how he interacted with the 160 kids that came to the dining hall during their lunch to find 'Eric Singer' handing out t-shirts to them. In addition, his friend Rhonda Rudolph handed out her children s books. The kids were so excited to receive the tee-shirts and books that they distributed. It was amazing how he made each child feel special and he took time to personally talk to them. Afterwards, he took two boys that had received a recent award out to lunch.
What an opportunity for both Michael and Nick to spend a couple hours just chatting with Eric and his friend Rhonda Rudolph over lunch. This was a once a lifetime opportunity for these boys!
McKinley Children's Center was truly honored to have Eric Singer visit our campus and get to know the children better.
THANK YOU Eric for adding a bright spot to the kids lives.
