Kids at Mount Saint Vincent enjoy visit, food

After the tour, the volunteers provided dinner for the kids from Kickin’ Wings, which was a huge hit. After dinner they broke into small groups and played bingo and other games with the kids.

"It made my whole year to see them light up like Coors Field to get a Slinky for playing bingo. I plan on doing more for them, with the organization and on my own," said Infusion A/R Specialist Jacqueline Scheidler.

Also enthusiastic about the volunteer opportunity was Infusion A/R Specialist Antoinette Martinez, who said, "My heart goes out to those men and women at Mount Saint Vincent who fight everyday to save those kids.  They are truly angels on earth."
