From November 10th to December 24th Caring for Kids is working to make a happy holiday season for our kids in the community. Along with our everyday work we held our annual Stuff the Bus at Clover Park High School. For six hours we had fifty enthusiastic high school students along with the adults stand outside encouraging the community to support Caring for Kids by donating toys and cash for the Holiday Fair.
We also sold 1,130 poinsettias to help defray the cost of the Holiday Fair. The poinsettias were delivered to us on December 4th. With the help of Adam Hedren we delivered almost all the plants in a day and a half.
Friday the 7th we set up for the Holiday Fair with the Fair being on the 8th. Approximately 150 kids and adults volunteered to make the Fair a success helping over 2,000 kids in need and their families. We work all year preparing for the Holiday Fair super shopping for the best deals on toys and clothes.
Our new project is collecting color books and crayons to be distributed at the food banks. So far we have collected over 400 sets.
On the 23rd we are committed to handing out small gifts and books at the Food Connection Truck in Springbrook. This is our fourth year.
