As we celebrate our 2nd birthday this month, we’d like to highlight one of our amazing families: The Baciak Family!!
The Baciak family has been coming to the Playhouse since it opened and are active in every way! Their 4-year old son, Andrew, graduated from attending the LMNOP program and now attends our Destination Discovery program. We love to see their smiling faces and appreciate their hearts to support and serve other families at the Playhouse. They’ve earned the award of Top Bowl-a-thon team for two years in a row when their team raised the most money!! Jim and Rebecca attend our Fundraising and Board Committee meetings and are always at the ready when asked for help. Their 9-year old son, Richard, participates in all activities and loves to play video games with other sibling friends he’s made!
It’s clear that the Baciak family love each other and love GiGi’s Playhouse.
When asked how Andrew has changed their lives, Rebecca said “We can not imagine life without Andrew’s warmth, enthusiasm, unique personality, and sense of humor. He is so open with his affections and loves to give hugs.”
Rebecca shared, “Andrew loves going to GiGi’s and interacting with other children and the caring volunteers and participating in the fun educational activities. The therapeutic exercise and play areas are wonderful…the ballpit, exercise balls, chalkboards, and other play areas all foster learning. Volunteers play one-on-one with him things like playing catch which he loves. The Playhouse is welcoming to the whole family and is an amazing place where siblings can play together.“
