Children’s Developmental Center of Lima Benefit from Generosity
On Wednesday, August 8, Lima Memorial teen volunteers will present Dr. Seuss inspired boxes full of essential school supplies to the Children’s Developmental Center (CDC), a United Way agency. These gifts come as a result of a supply drive the LMHS teen volunteers organize annually. The drive provides much-needed items that will greatly benefit the development of children who need it the most. Over the course of three weeks, donations poured in and boxes became full of arts and crafts, snacks, school supplies and materials vital to the day-to-day operations of the Children’s Developmental Center.
This year, Ally Carpenter, Shawnee High School student, and Meredith Swick, Lima Central Catholic High School student, led the project and went above and beyond for this incredible cause. With a Dr. Seuss theme, Carpenter and Swick encouraged all LMHS teen volunteers to decorate their boxes of classroom supplies while channeling their love for all things Dr. Seuss!
Located within Lima Memorial Health System, the Children’s Developmental Center of Lima is a school-based program for children birth to school-age who have a special need or may need help as they grow. The focus of this unique program is an interdisciplinary approach that includes developmental classes, physical, occupational & speech therapies.
