With more than 37 million youth and adults participating at over 3.5 million workplaces each year, Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day  celebrates 21 years of program history in 2014.

The 2014 program took place Thursday, April 24 across the country, including in Pennsylvania at the company headquarters of Benco Dental, the largest privately owned dental company in the United States.

In line with one of the goals of the day, children were allowed the opportunity to complete two 45-minute job shadow sessions to learn about the departments at the company.

As part of the activities, children assembled care packages to help support the needs of  Veterans at the VA Medical Center, which for 50 years has been improving the health of the men and women who have served the nation.

In addition, they were invited to participate in a video shoot in the company’s Marketing Communications department.
