Last Saturday, December 21, some members of the CorralRosales team volunteered at a Christmas party at San Vicente de Paúl Children’s Home. This state institution, managed by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paúl Company, is responsible for the care and protection of up to 300 children between zero and twelve years of age.
CorralRosales firmly believes in corporate social responsibility; that is why we are always willing to be part of any humanitarian event or activity.
On this occasion, we decided to share our time, which is the most valuable thing we have. The volunteers of the CorralRosales team spent a day sharing activities, playing games and listening to these little children who need so much attention and love.
65 boys and girls from newborns to adolescents attended the event. They were able to enjoy an afternoon full of fun with a clown, magic tricks and live music. Together the CorralRosales team and the children sang the traditional Christmas carols, played with friends, and ate hamburgers and cotton candy; small pleasures the children thanked with smiles that lit up their faces as well as ours. And as it is to be expected at a Christmas celebration, Santa, Mrs. Clause and their helpers handed out gifts that included toys and clothes.
Without a doubt, it was an unforgettable and very emotional experience, not only for the little ones but also for the entire CorralRosales volunteer team. Having the opportunity to share time with these children reminded us of how fortunate we are and that we can find happiness in small things such as a smile, a hug or a laugh in the company of our friends.
Happy Holidays from the CorralRosales Team!
