On Friday, March 2, 2018, Litigation Partner Eric Assouline, of Assouline & Berlowe, through his alumni’s program ASU Cares, and Arizona State University, had the great pleasure of reading Dr. Seuss books to a kindergarten class at Jack & Jill Children’s Center, in Fort Lauderdale.
I have driven past Jack & Jill for years and never knew about the magic that is going on inside.
To start, every Friday, the first thing that the kids do is of course, say the pledge of allegiance. Very nice. Then, God Bless America. Very nice. I like that.
Then, the fun starts, time to turn up the music and start DANCING!!!
What a better way to start off a Friday, than dancing! It puts everyone in such a great mood!
Then the four volunteers from Arizona State University each started reading Dr. Seuss books to the kids. The kids seemed to really like having guests in their classrooms reading to them. It is was so nice to be around all these beautiful children. Being surrounded by innocence reminds us how precious our children are, especially at this fragile time in our Broward County community still reeling from recent tragic events.
We all took a tour of the facilities and saw their playground, vegetable garden (that they use to make meals at the facility), and parent media center to help parents continue to improve their financial positions.
What an eye opening experience. It was a truly great way to start the end of the week.
Thank you Arizona State University Alumni Association for making this happen, Jack & Jill Children’s Center for inviting us into your wonderful and impactful facility, and Happy 114th Birthday Dr. Seuss!
