Eye Level Holiday Event

On December 21st, Eye Level Hub celebrated the holiday season with students and local community members.

Children enjoyed live entertainment from face painting elves, a balloon maker, and a magician with a team of magical pets. There were multiple Eye Level math games on hand which allowed kids the opportunity to challenge themselves and win prizes. Carolers entertained the crowd with classic holiday songs and Ol’ Saint Nick made an appearance to take a photos and hand out gifts to every child!

Many members of the community also donated a toy to Toys for Tots and were entered into a Raffle to win a Nintendo Switch! Congratulations to the raffle winners and a big thank you to all those that donated toys!

We wish each of you happy holidays from our family to yours!

In an effort to give back to the community, this year Eye Level partnered with Smile, a local food pantry in NJ to provide essentials to struggling families in time for Thanksgiving. Both Eye level headquarters and local Eye Level centers participated in the collection. Thanks to the efforts of the collective Eye Level family, nearly 100 lbs of food was donated to the Smile pantry along with diapers for families with babies. We are very proud of each student that donated and commend them for willingness to give back to the community!
