When: Monday, October 15
Where: Detroit, MI
RA50 kicked off in Detroit by helping Head Start Daycare Programs get healthy. We visited three of these programs in the area that provide daycare for children of low-income families. We stopped at both Vista Nuevas Head Start Centers, where our Cold & Flu Crew helped “flu proof” the facility.
The Crew cleaned toys, walls and commonly touched surfaces, so the children and workers can stay healthy and safe during cold and flu season. Children played and laughed as our team went to work. One child even offered to help the team with the wipe down and asked a team member if they could help protect him at home from the “flu monster.”
We also brought along a variety of health and wellness supplies including office stocking kits, Cold & Flu Kits, and new family and baby items.
