The Body Care That Cares
At Green Envee, we know that children are the future. With this in mind, we are thrilled to be working with these two amazing organizations through volunteering and monetary donations.
Green Envee is also dedicated to re-connecting children with nature. In order for a child’s healthy physical and emotional development, they must have direct exposure to nature. In today’s society, more often than not, children are sitting around playing video games or watching TV.
Missing are the days of running around with friends outside until the street lights come on. With the dangers of being outside alone, that is understandable. However, it is crucial for children to re-connect with nature and it is our mission to educate children, parents, and caregivers on how to foster children to develop a love and appreciation of nature. This will not only benefit the child, but the future of the Earth as well, which we all know is endangered.
Hephzibah Children’s Association, located in Oak Park, IL , is Oak Park’s oldest charity, which was founded in 1897. Hephzibah offers many services including group homes, foster care, family services, and day care, primarily for children who have been orphaned, abused, or neglected. Their mission is to help children thrive and families flourish through innovative, community-based programs. We are delighted to be working with such a wonderful organization.
