Partner with Playworks – Teacher Appreciation Kits

  1. Updates

Playworks strives to engage with corporate partners and their employees as they play with purpose and experience the importance of our mission – as safe, healthy play and connectivity to our communities proves to be as important as ever – for youth and adults. 

This opportunity is a fun and tactile way to engage corporate groups in assembling appreciation kits filled with a Playworks games ring, gift card, stress ball, hand sanitizer, etc. In collaboration with Playworks, volunteer leads will provide the group with the items and bags to assemble appreciation kits.

Volunteering with Playworks offers a team-building experience that is inclusive, collaborative, and fun! When you put a focus on team building in the workplace, you improve team collaboration and morale, boost your employee’s health and happiness, and increase motivation.  It’s true! When your company volunteers with Playworks you’re helping fund our mission in elementary schools. Each opportunity helps us provide educators and administrators the resources they need to connect, heal, and empower their students through the power of play. 

Playworks Colorado has a goal to provide appreciation kits to all teachers that work in our partner schools. We are excited to work with your office to ensure every teacher receives a thank you kit. Currently, we have secured 60 out of 796 kits. Partner with Playworks to create meaningful kits to appreciate our teachers.
