This past December, more than 50 Kids Can kids gathered together to help those who need it the most: homeless families in our community and nationally.
Each child created a “House for Change” collection box that they filled with change to raise money for two nonprofits that help homeless families: the Broward Outreach Center and Family Promise, the national sponsor of Houses for Change.
Nearly four months later these kids have proven once again that they are simply awesome!!! On Sunday April 5th, the kids gathered once again at the Posnack JCC; this time to count all that change!!
The kids took turns sharing their stories about how they decorated their boxes and then how they worked with their families to collect change around their houses, and with their friends and family.
After a fun warm up with Justin Seedman from JustinFit, a proud supporter of Kids Can, including freeze dance and their favorite- tug of war, an announcement was made!
The Kids Can kids collected nearly $700 so far in their effort to help homeless families. Over twenty kids came out to help count the change, and there is more pouring in!
After all that hard work, the kids were treated to healthy popsicles from PopLabs, a well deserved reward!
