Kiwanis Holiday Party 2016 061 Cropped Large ResOur heartfelt thanks goes out to the Kiwanis Club of Allentown for making the spirit (and future) a little brighter for young children in our community. LVCC’s preschool classes decked the halls at the annual holiday party sponsored by our generous friends at Kiwanis. What first began as a small gathering for one classroom many years ago grew into a grand holiday event for 160 Allentown preschoolers attending Lehigh Valley Children's Centers.

Kiwanis Holiday Party 2016 008 Large ResThe Kiwanians supplied a delicious lunch for the children and served it with the help of the Allen High School Key Club. The Key Club played an important service role as Santa's elves. And the children love interacting with the teens.

The show gave all the children an opportunity to practice listening skills and raising hands. A few audience participants were encouraged to assist the magician during the performance in front of their peers while building self-confidence.

We are proud to partner with our wonderful friends at Kiwanis Club of Allentown, who are building our community, one child at a time. Thank you from the staff and children at LVCC. Happy holidays!
