Featured Family of the Month – June 2013

Kindness, community, generosity of both time and spirit – these are the heart of our program’s success. To celebrate the fact that the doodle community is made up of passionate individuals who truly care, we used our 20th year (2012) as a unique opportunity to ‘pay it forward’ in the communities we serve.

The shared sense of joy and accomplishment that arose from the initiative inspired us to repeat it! In December 2012, we wrapped up our 20th year with twenty additional acts of kindness – Mr. Doodle Bug was spotted at nursing homes, children’s hospitals, city missions, public libraries and other local organizations.

This was the perfect way to celebrate our growing community of happy children, happy parents, and happy teachers. And now, as we embark on our 21st year, we are proud to celebrate by recognizing the individuals that make this all possible … and that is our incredible families.

Beginning in February 2013 and continuing until January 2014 we will be featuring one outstanding family each month. This family will be showcased on our website, social media pages, and receive a $25 Bill Gray’s gift certificate, a Doodle Bugs! gift basket and one week of free tuition for one child’s tuition maximum.



We are proud to announce the Komosinski family from our Orchard Park center as the June Family of the Month!

The Komosinski family has been a part of the Orchard Park Doodle Bugs! family since 2008 and consists of Mark and Natalie and their children Claire and Oliver.

The Komosinskis are always friendly and kind in their interactions with everyone at the center, making all the individuals they come in contact with feel happy and appreciated. They always support center events and community initiatives by attending and looking for additional ways to contribute. They often take the time to recognize our teachers’ talents through emails, cards and special gifts. In addition, they have referred several wonderful parents to our program who are now enrolled with Doodle Bugs!

Thank you again to the Komosinski family for being an important part of our Doodle Bugs! family.
