Kid's Helping Kids

A BIG Thank You to the children & members of National Avenue Christian Church for organizing a Silent Auction & Spaghetti Dinner to raise money for our charity!

This was the idea of the Elementary children at the church, who decided to help support local foster children. The event raised $1,146!!!

It's truly inspiring to see Kids helping Kids. We are honored to be chosen by this church to receive this very special gift & we will definitely put it to good use. We are seeing close to 1,000 children in foster care from Greene County, Missouri alone. We appreciate all help as we serve these special kids!

New Volunteer Tutors!

Hip, Hip, Hooray!!!

We have 5 new Volunteer Tutors trained & almost ready to be matched with foster children from Greene County, MO. We also have 1 additional student opening, so hoping to make 6 new tutor matches in the next few weeks. We're in the process of making 2 matches already, so that will be 8 new foster children receiving free 1-on-1 tutoring in the first couple months of 2011.

Very exciting to be able to help these special kids. Thank you to our special Volunteer Tutors who donate their time & resources to make a difference. You can too! Want more info on becoming a Tutor, check out our Tutoring Webpage.

Special Thanks to Katelind Rohde, our BSW Intern, for doing such a wonderful job promoting our program & recruiting Tutors!
