Volunteer Spotlight: Safeway Really Cares

In November, Bright Beginnings welcomed an enthusiastic team of Safeway store managers who volunteered in our classrooms for children 6 weeks to 5 years old and donated items from their stores for our children and parents. After a tour of our classrooms, 14 Safeway store managers from the Alexandria, Annandale, Arlington, Bailey’s Crossroads, Dupont Circle, Fairfax, McArthur Boulevard, Springfield and Watergate stores spent time reading to our infants, making homemade butter and creating artwork in our Pre-K classrooms and splashing in the water table with our toddlers. Safeway Manager Scott Stanley said, “While I was only able to spend a few hours with your very special children, I know I will never forget the experience.” We send a special thank you to Eugene Peters, the Dupont Circle Safeway Manager, for organizing the visit and the generous donation of store items for children and their parents.
