Play Area Redo!

On Wednesday, August 5, the FRC staff worked to organize our storage and redo the Play Area in our main office at the Oakwood Mall.  Talk about one hard working staff!

  • ServiceMaster of Chippewa Valley started our day with a thorough cleaning of our carpet.
  • While that was going on, tubs and tubs of stored materials were sorted through.  Some were reorganized, some items were donated and many trips were made to the dumpster. 
  • Then we began to unwrap and put out new rugs, new storage tubs and playhouse & dollhouse toys provided by funding from the Daniel F. and Margaret J. Brown Memorial Fund of the Eau Claire Community Foundation.

And....drum roll -- here is the result:

Let the playing begin!

Our cup kind of overflows!

Our sincerest thanks to the Eau Claire Morning Rotary for presenting the Family Resource Center with a check to support our work with the First Connections program.

These funds were made possible through their fund raising efforts from
 SuperBeans  and their Golf Outing.
Thanks Rotarians -- we are ever so grateful!
