The Kids Aid backpack program that provides weekend food supplies to hungry children has been growing steadily for years. The organization currently serves 2,200 children a week and has maxed out what it can do in its current donated warehouse. The program has been growing 7% annually.
The Kids Aid board has been looking to purchase their own warehouse where they can store more food items and provide more space for volunteers to prepare food supplies for delivery.
On May 24th, Kids Aid moved from its current location into its own warehouse at 2978 Gunnison Avenue.
Two of our Community Foundation donor funds and the Kids Aid Board have contributed $100,000 as a matching challenge to the community. All donations made before June 30th will be matched dollar for dollar. Any size donation is appreciated.
As of May 25, $80,000 has been raised towards the $100,000 match.
Help Kids Aid meet the fundraising challenge and get your donation for the new warehouse matched!
