PNC donates puppets, reads to the children

Posted: Thursday, April 13, 2017

Representatives from PNC recently visited Pathfinder Kids Kampus to read to the children with puppets. The puppets were then donated to the child care and early learning facility.

In addition to reading and the donation of the puppets for the classrooms, PNC employees also worked with the children to customize their very own puppet to be taken home. The staff at the Huntington PNC branch took time to prepare felt pants, shirts, overalls and dresses in a variety of colors and shapes so that each child could make their puppet to his or her liking. PNC also donated an iPad to be used in the classrooms.

The reading, donation and crafting project are all a part of PNC’s Grow up Great initiative, a nationwide effort to help children from birth through age five develop a passion for learning that lasts a lifetime and can help set them on a path to success.

“We are so appreciative for our partnership with PNC and the fun, learning activities they bring to our classrooms through the Grow up Great program. We truly appreciate the support our local PNC branch offers to Kids Kampus through this program as well as their time volunteering, donating items and providing critical funds for our programs and services,” stated Loretta Mottram, senior director of business development for Pathfinder Services.
