Wouldn’t it be great if we could take time out from our busy schedules and give back to our community in a thoughtful way? Corey staffers stepped up to the challenge in a big way. After a team vote, we overwhelmingly chose to place our efforts into helping our Watertown neighbors, The Perkins School for the Blind. Steeped in rich history, Perkins was founded over 180 years ago as the first school for the blind in the United States. Perkins is located on a 38-acre campus on the Charles River in Watertown with partner programs in 65 countries. The school is committed to providing education and services that build productive, meaningful lives for children and adults around the world who are blind or deafblind, including those with additional disabilities. Corey embraces the Perkins legacy of education and discovery and is enthusiastic about lending our support. We’re dedicating our time this Spring to a number of different events including some outdoor rooftop garden weeding, as well as fun activities with students including Perkins Track and Field Events and Alumni Weekend events. To show their appreciation, Perkins will set up a group tour where Corey can participate in some experiential activities around the campus.
We knew that volunteering would be good for our community, but the personal rewards have been GREAT.
