Every Child Deserves Summer Fun

Thinking back on the first day of summer vacation brings up some great memories. As a child I remember feeling the freedom from school and the idea of having a seemingly endless summer before me – what bliss!

At HAVEN we believe our kids staying at the shelter should have some of the same positive summer experiences that we all enjoyed. No child wants to spend their summer in a shelter, so our task is to turn that negative into a positive.

With the assistance, financial support and volunteerism of AXA Advisors (a financial advising firm) our Summer Kick-off event was a great success! Approximately a dozen children enjoyed a carnival-like atmosphere in our parking lot with games, face painting, a bounce house, fun food and prizes. AXA Advisor staff provided the games, food and helping hands from beginning to end. PLUS they painted our second floor TV room and library- talk about double duty!

Our hats are off to AXA for a great start to summer. If you would like to be part of our ongoing celebration of summer, please contact Belle Hornung at bhornung@haven-oakland.org or (248) 334-1284 extension 659.
