“We believe that kids can change our world one kind act at a time.”

Did you know?
Southern California remains home to the largest homeless population in the country.

Project
Creating Care Kits to hand out to the homeless.

What are Care Kits?
Care Kits are bags of useful items such as food, water and other essentials that could help someone in need.

Now – Wednesday, March 25th
Over the next two weeks, we are asking families to donate the following by grade level.  All items can be given to your teacher.

Grade 2:          water bottles

Assembly of Care Kits

Families are invited to help in assembly of kits on the main yard.  After all kits are assembled, at 4:30p, families may opt to sign out 2-5 kits (depending on supply and demand) to keep in their car.

The next time you see a homeless person, you’ll have something of value to give!

All leftover kits will be donated to Operation Skid Row.
