Crafting Happiness

On Thursday, August 14th, Credit Suisse’s CFO Change staff team welcomed Family Center client families to their office at 11 Madison Avenue for an arts and crafts project.  Each person created two greeting cards -one for someone in their life and one for an area hospital or nursing home patient.   Along with the help of Credit Suisse volunteers, client families demonstrated their artistic skills by decorating over 30 greeting cards with silk flowers, glitter, shapes, and stencils.  Volunteers’ and clients’ creative talents did not stop there, as they also designed posters with empowering messages like “Smile!” and “Love, Laugh, Learn.”  These custom cards and posters will be delivered by Family Center staff and clients to hospital and nursing home patients in the neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, where our main office is now located.  Our children and families thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are excited about their new friends at Credit Suisse!  Everyone at The Family Center is tremendously grateful to the staff team of CFO Change for this wonderful event.  We hope it will be the first of many!
