A brand new place to hang our tools!

Four Saturdays in a row, and we couldn't pick a favorite if we tried! On Saturday, October 15th, we were fortunate enough to have Alcoa volunteer with us for the day! With 37 volunteers, they were able to complete over 158 hours of service, and boy does it show!

First things first, it was straight to the shed for these volunteers! You wouldn't believe some of the... relics... we found buried in there!

Between adding electricity, shelving units, storage units, a work desk and more, we just can't thank Alcoa enough! We don't think we've ever seen Art so happy!

But that wasn't all! There is always painting...

... and more painting...

... and more painting...

... and even MORE painting to be done!

(Can't you see the difference?)

We are so thankful for all the volunteers from Alcoa that came out to help!

By the time October is over, you won't even recognize our campus!

On October 8th, we were fortunate enough to have over 100 volunteers give up part of their Saturday to come help out around campus! Between the volunteers from the Orange County Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators, Kohl's as part of their Kohl's Cares Program, Villa Park High School and El Modena High School, they preformed over 420 hours of service!

Preperations started on Friday when over 700 bags of woodchips were delivered! (Thanks Canon!)

Then it was all hands on deck as our Saturday Workday began!

Be careful, it's a jungle out there!

Between the orange and the purple, the Kohl's Cares volunteers fit right in!

All of our students came to school on Monday to find squeaky clean classrooms! Thanks guys!

This woodchipping is serious business!

Wow! New woodchips make the whole playground look brand new!

 These are just some of the volunteers that were here...
... and we're so thankful for them all!!!

Thanks again to everyone that came out! Next up... Aloca on Saturday October 15th!

The changes around campus are WILD!

On October 1st, KTGY celebrated 20 amazing years by volunteering here at Blind Children's Learning Center. We may be biased, but we can't think of a better way to celebrate such a monumental occasion!

 They painted the outside of our Outreach Building!
 They CREATED and PAINTED this gorgeous mural on our Infant and Toddler building!
 They painted our Multipurpose Room!

They put everyone to work! We used these great fall decorations at our Back to School Night!
They painted the toys on our Infant and Toddler Playground!

They painted poles, doors and door swings!

We are so thankful for everyone from KTGY that came out and made some wild changes around campus! A big thank you to OneOC for putting this wonderful day together!
