Pinwheels Family Fun Day

Exchange Family Center’s Pinwheels Family Fun Day brings together families, friends, and the greater community to generate awareness about the importance of supporting families and teachers to help children be resilient.

“When families spend time together, the interaction increases children’s social-emotional growth and strengthens family bonds,” says Rachel Galanter, Exchange Family Center Executive Director. “Pinwheels lets families come and play together to help build those strong bonds that support children’s ability to be resilient while also sharing information with the community about how we all can help children thrive now and as they grow.”

Mini Golf Tournament

This adults-only event brings together friends, colleagues, and the greater community to generate awareness about the importance of supporting families and how we as a community can help children thrive now and as they grow. Join us for our next round of competition in 2020!
