Atlanta office teams with Easter Seals to bring joy to children

On May 16, the McGladrey Atlanta office brought a carnival of fun to the Premier Academy, a day care operated by Easter Seals of North Georgia for underprivileged children ages five and under. The event was part of McGladrey’s Volunteer Day program. 

About 20 McGladrey employees descended upon the center to provide a day of entertainment. About 60 children between the ages of 2-5 years participated in the carnival including games, face painting, arts and crafts, story time, ring toss, bubbles, basketball and many other engaging activities for young children. Even SpongeBob Squarepants and his sidekick Patrick (played by McGladrey employees!) were on hand to entertain the kids. 

Renee said the firm donated $400 for supplies and then Easter Seals purchased the supplies and set up the stations for the carnival. The event was brought indoors due to flooding in the outdoor area, but the children enjoyed it just the same. “The kids had a great time,” Renee said.
