In celebration of National Volunteer Week, we interviewed a long-time Corning Children's Center volunteer. Lisa Gill has been involved with the Center for nearly 10 years as a parent and volunteer. Lisa shares some of her memories below on her involvement with the Center for the last decade.
- How long have you been involved with the Center as a parent and volunteer? In just a couple months, I will celebrate my 10 year anniversary of having kids attend the Center. Shortly after my oldest son started at the Center, I began volunteering as a room parent.
- What made you want to get involved with the Center as a volunteer? The Center is such a great place for kids and families. Seeing how much each of the staff members invest of themselves into the care of the kids made me want to volunteer as a way of giving back.
- What’s been the most rewarding experience(s) you’ve had working with this organization? It is really hard to pick just one! I have been personally fulfilled by volunteering in various capacities and being able to offer assistance as needed. However, perhaps the most fulfilling experience has been having my kids thrive at the Center. They have loved their caregivers and I will be forever grateful for the excellent care and wonderful experiences we have had at the Center.
- Anything else you’d like the community to know about Corning Children’s Center that you think isn’t well known? The Center is so much more than 'daycare.' It’s a place where my children have been exposed to wonderful experiences around music, art and children's literature. They have built relationships with their teachers and their peers that have lasted long past their days at the Center. I could not have imagined a better childcare experience for my kids and I will be forever grateful to live in a community that has such a wonderful resource for its young families. ...

Milagros – Words for the Future
For centuries, Milagros have been used to ask for wishes, special intervention, and good fortune. They have been made from bone, tin, wood, silver, gold and other materials and pinned to the walls of churches. Today, throughout Latin America, Milagros can still be found in abundance.
At Corning Children’s Center, we have a tradition of honoring our children each April by creating a Milagro Wall in the lobby. Teachers help children record or represent their wishes and dreams. The cards are then displayed amid colorful streamers, creating a magical place that celebrates kids and embodies our hope for the world that values and embraces our smallest citizens.
Please feel free to add your own wishes and dreams to ours … and talk to your kids about their dreams for the future – someday begins today! ... See MoreSee Less
