Bright Visions Early Childhood Center - Campus Activities

Corporate Experience for
Outerwall, Inc. and OneOC

What if you were visually impaired and unable to speak.  How would you ask for your favorite food?
What if you were blind. How would you safely and independently walk to a destination?
These were just two of four exercises more than 50 volunteers from Outerwall, Inc. with OneOC staff experienced at the Center. They also generously donated and made art kits for each child. 
"Great event - universal home run from the team as a great perspective builder. We have a lot of passionate people that are now re-energized to help in our respective communities." - Wil Johnson, Senior Vice President of Sales - Outerwall, Inc.
"I was very moved when the volunteers did the activities, as they were blindfolded and went through the experience that Blind Children's Learning Center kids have everyday of their lives. It was powerful to watch the volunteers go through this process." - Abby Edmunds, Volunteer Services Manager OneOC

Aquarium of the Pacific's - Aquarium on Wheels Comes to the Center

Many thanks to Honda Financial Services for underwriting the Aquarium on Wheels event at the Center.  With wheel chair accessibility, all of the students had the opportunity to have hands-on experiences with live marine creatures.
