KIDS 4 VETS
This year we have exciting projects in the works to help support our veteran community. Though the Heart of America Stand Down has been cancelled due to the pandemic, Kids 4 Vets will continue our commitment supporting veterans in need. This year, we are partnering with local veterans' organizations to bring much need toiletries directly to veterans. Please see below details about two toiletry drives made possible with the support of students and families at Prairie Elementary and Indian Hills Middle School.
Project 1. Prairie Toiletry Drive - 2022
After nearly a two-year break (due to the pandemic), Kids 4 Vets is excited to announce it will be hosting a spring toiletry drive with the help students and faculty at Prairie Elementary. This year we are partnering with St. Michael's Veterans Home in Kansas City, Missouri, and items collected will be donated to veteran residents. The drive will be held from May 2 -6, 2022, and as in years past a special prize will be awarded to the three classes that bring in the most donations! This year, the winning classes will be awarded a pizza party and the ever important "bragging rights"! For a list of items be collected please click here.
