FIFTH ANNUAL HOLIDAY MISSION FOR THE KARE KITS KIDZ HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN AND WE NEED YOUR HELP


With the holidays quickly approaching we have begun our fifth annual holiday mission to provide holiday gifts to all of our kidz! If a family is struggling with providing food for their family they certainly will struggle with gifts for the holidays. We would like to do what we can to make the holidays a bit brighter for the children.We currently have over 350 children on our list from toddlers through high school students!! This year we have many more children in need then ever before. We need your help to provide gifts to so many children.

If you would like to be a part of this wonderful annual event please reach out to us through Facebook, to our email at kyleeskarekitsforkidz1@gmail.com or visit one of 7 local businesses that have Holiday Giving trees with tags for some of our kids.

We currently have tags for some of our children spread throughout the city and have many more ready to be chosen to be adopted through our email or by messaging us on Facebook. We would like to thank the following businesses for putting up trees with our children's tags. They are:

About Face Salon & Day Spa 285 Central Street Leominster

Crossfit EXP 100 Crawford Street Leominster

Dr. Timothy Gallagher 54 Williams Street Leominster

Manestream Day Spa 10 Prospect Street Leominster

The Claw Shop 1123 Central Street Leominster

Worker's Credit Union North Main Street Watertower Plaza Leominster

Worker's Credit Union 881 Merriam Ave Twin City Plaza Leominster

Please stop by and take a tag or feel free to drop off individual toys or clothing that we would then be able to give to a child in need. We can use hats, mittens, pajamas, sweatshirts, socks, or any other items you may like to donate. We have approximately 40 additional tags that have not been put on trees so please contact us so we can make the holidays a little brighter for children in need. Remember these are ALL LOCAL CHILDREN needing our help. Your donations help children in our community.

We will need all donations back by Friday, December 16th so that we have time to prepare the gifts to be delivered to the children. Thank you very much for helping us to make the holidays brighter for our kidz!! It is so much better to give than to receive!!

Happy Holidays,

KYLEE’S KARE KITS FOR KIDZ WANTS TO INVITE YOU TO BE A PART OF GIVING TUESDAY

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 29th, 2016, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

If you are able to give this year, please consider giving to Kylee’s Kare Kits for Kidz, Inc, a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in Leominster, Massachusetts in 2012 by then ten year old Kylee McCumber. Kylee and her team currently provide kare kits of food to over 350 children every week. These are food insecure children who would go hungry over the weekends or when they are not in school. We would greatly appreciate your considering making a donation to our mission to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry. You can donate directly on our website at kyleeskarekitsforkidz.org or by mailing a check to:
Kylee’s Kare Kits for Kidz, Inc 68 Main Street #564 Leominster, MA 01453.

No donation is too small. Every dollar counts! All donations are tax deductible! For every $5 that is donated we are able to provide a child with a kare kit of food. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that your donation prevented a child from going to bed hungry tonight?

Thank you for considering helping us to help the children. Happy Holidays!!

Kylee and the kare kits team

THANK YOU TO THE CARING INSTITUTE IN WASHINGTON DC


I would like to thank Mr. Val Halamandaris, the founder of The Caring Institute in Washington DC, for the honor of being one of the five young adult Caring Award winners for 2016. It was an honor to attend the 31st Caring Awards Celebration on October 22nd in Orlando, Florida and to be a recipient of this prestigious award. Not only were there five young adult winners but there were five adult winners as well. It was amazing to be amongst all these wonderfully caring, dedicated individuals who do so much humanitarian service around the world. I accepted this award for my entire kare kit team as I could not do this work without their dedication and support!

“The Caring Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the principles of caring, integrity and public service.” It was founded by Mr. Halamandaris in 1985 to promote those values and was inspired by his relationship with Mother Teresa. “The institute also sponsors the Caring Hall of Fame in the Frederick Douglass Museum where the inspiring stories and photographs of all the awardees for the past 31 years are on display. This historic site is located on Capital Hill in Washington, DC.”

Please visit their website at www.caring.org to learn more about this wonderful organization.
