SEI received volunteer help from Target and would like to share this message from a volunteer about how helping made a difference for them.
I just wanted to thank you again for including us in today’s event at SEI. These “moments” really enrich and impact our lives and it’s part of what I love about Target. I want to share a moment I had with my 15 year old son this afternoon. After we got back to Beaverton he smiled and hugged me (not completely strange but kind of rare these days…). He said “Thanks Mom. That was a really special day for me. All my other friends are probably just rolling out of bed or they are glued to their video games. I get to say that I did something bigger. I appreciate that.” Such a profound statement from someone who would have been one of those guys sleeping until noon and then playing video games himself. lol It meant a lot to me. My team was happy to be part of something where they really felt like they were giving back. Thank you for making a difference for all of us.
