The Power of You!
I cannot believe it has been 4 years since our community embraced the idea that we needed to do more to help those less fortunate in our community. Your efforts and support didn’t end with a hand-out – instead, it led to a hand-up. We came together as donors, volunteers, and advocates to help the whole community by
- promoting childhood literacy through our Recycled Reader program,
- feeding the needy through our Raising Rochester community garden program, and
- helping needy kids through our Back to School Bonanza program.
WE THANK YOU!
We have accomplished so much together. In just a few short years KidzKare has
Provided health screenings and follow-up for 2,200 children entering school,
Distributed over $310,000 in donated goods and services to school-aged children,
Built 120 raised garden beds at 22 community gardens,
Provided hands-on garden learning to 1,200 area students,
Provided 2,800lbs of fresh produce to needy families, and
Designed programs to improve the physical, emotional, social, and educational
well-being of children and youth in the greater Rochester area.
Many of these accomplishments are attributed to the "Power of You!" But we are just getting started. I know that with a generous gift from you and others in our community, we can expand our proven programs and continue to make a transformational change in the lives of thousands of children who are less fortunate! Please join me and consider making a tax deductible gift to KidzKare and feel free to share this email with your family, friends, neighbors, and work associates.
Many blessings to you and your family during this season of giving.
