“It was a great opportunity for kids to understand those less fortunate as well as practically be involved in contributing. It was great to meet the people who we were helping too”.
Lovely feedback from the last of our July holiday programs, Cook4Good. Kids Giving Back creates hands on, meaningful, age appropriate volunteering opportunities and it is always amazing to hear we’ve hit our brief.
476 meals made, packaged and delivered by our volunteers yesterday, taking our total number of volunteer hours to 530.5 these holidays. That’s over 22 days solid of doing good!
