As part of a before/after school program, the 28 KidsCare Club in Northbrook, IL and their facilitator, Melissa Patricelli had a very busy year. The Club members collected toiletry items, placed them in hand decorated boxes and donated them to the local food pantry.  They also made paper hearts for the local animal shelter for use in collecting donations and also collected candy that was sent to soldiers overseas.  They also made friendship bracelets that were mailed to girls of all ages, all over the world.  For a big food packing event, kids and parents came together to pack meals for Feed My Starving Children.  One parent exclaimed, "Thanks so much for the opportunity to join your group.  So many students and parents were there helping and they got so much out of it.  We want to do it every month!"

Adventure Kids Care Club Collect Pennies to Buy Toys for Tots

The 4th and 5th grade student members of the Adventure Kids Care Club in St. Louis, MO were given the tools needed. They operated and facilitated a penny drive raising $230.00. The students then went shopping with 2 teachers, Ms. Bergheger and Mrs. Cunningham at the local Target store where each student was given a set spending limit to pick out toys to be purchased with the money raised. This taught the value of the dollar to all involved. The toys were then donated to the Toys for Tots Foundation. US Marine Corps. Sgt. Gavin Lewis came to visit Adventure Kids Care Club to speak to the kids (60) about the foundation, and to give them pins that stated that they had donated to Toys for Tots prior to loading up the toys.
