KIDS CARE was started by a mother daughter duo. An 8 year old girl wanted the world to know that KIDS do CARE. Jaida was given a homeschool assignment while driving around in the car to make an acrostic poem - any choice of words. Within a few minutes time she choose the word KIDS and had created Kindness In Doing Service for the word KIDS.
After a delicious discussion on kids community service the mother/daughter duo created the second half of our name CARE. Which stands for Connecting And Respecting Everyone. KIDS CARE was then born and Jaida's mission was heard & supported so that she can lead the way to serve the community in a way that a kid wants too. And what better way to do this than with other kids, families and friends. Lead on KIDS! Lead on!
KIDS CARE is an acrostic poem for:
(KIDS) Kindness In Doing Service
(CARE) Connecting And Respecting Everyone
KIDS CARE is now in our 4th year of being a Service learning nonprofit. Our mission is to create youth community service experiences, encourage Kindness and raise awareness about our environment.
We offer monthly volunteer opportunities for ALL AGES. We enjoy mixing all aged volunteers together for great group experiences. Most of our volunteer experiences stem from the kids ideas on how and who they want to serve. All volunteer experiences are also used as service learning opportunities to discuss empathy, compassion, kindness, awareness of the needs of others and many more learning topics.
Due to the undeniable passion that youth have about our environment KIDS CARE also promotes environmental awareness with litter pick ups and learning sessions about our natural environment.
👉 We are looking to form new partnerships with volunteers, donors, supporters and corporate sponsors to help us on our mission.👈
