April 23 was “Bring Your Daughters & Sons to Work Day”, a nation-wide program dedicated to helping our nation’s daughters and sons explore their future opportunities at work, at home, and in the community. Twelve daughters and sons and grandchildren of employees (and friends of employees), ages 8 to 15, spent the day at Peruvian Connection’s Tonganoxie, KS headquarters. Activities were planned to help the boys and girls experience what’s involved and required for a job and to discuss the challenges of integrating work and family responsibilities. Various departments sponsored hands-on activities where the children had the opportunity to design an article of clothing, listen in on actual customer calls, process and ship orders, think about career choices and play a game of Peruvian Bingo. Thanks to all the kids who participated!
