Volunteers helped us receive food donations from the general public, unloaded, sorted, counted & re-loaded all donations.
We would not have been able to process through all the donations we received without the valuable work of the volunteers. We are so grateful for their service!
Local businesses became a drop off location for the public to stop by and donate food items. KIDS CARE LOVES connecting with our local community and supporting one another.

KIDS CARE would like to encourage individuals & families to be a great Kindster & volunteer in your own neighborhoods to collect non-perishable food items.
You choose! However you want to do it and whichever way you prefer to collect. Collect from within your neighborhood and social network. Have friends, family and co-workers drop off their donated food items to your door or mailbox. Food can be donated to your charity of choice or we can help guide you on how to deliver to one of the organizations we delivered to. Give it a Go & see how much you can collect to GIVE TO OTHERS IN NEED!
Let's see what you can do! Challenge your friends, challenge your neighbors! This a great way to participate in community service in which you can safely give back to our local community. Have fun - post on social media, set your own goals, and HELP US make an IMPACT!!
