FOR THE KIDS
Hope Changes Lives
FEEDING THE FUTURE OF AMERICA
For The Kids helps children in our own backyard. Our focus is on involving the community in developing, mentoring, and feeding kids with passion, dedication, and care.
Community involvement allows us to succeed in providing volunteer opportunities, fulfilling specific donation needs, and organizing private fundraising opportunities, in addition to our weekly food deliveries.
Each Friday, volunteers deliver food to schools for children in need to take home for the weekend. On Mondays, students return to school, ready to learn, with one less worry.
With help from community donations and volunteers, we put together over 400 meals to provide families with everything they need to enjoy a traditional holiday meal.
Mentoring programs to help children become leaders in their schools and summer camps focused on fostering interpersonal skills provide children with opportunities for growth.
