Kids Care Club hosted our first ever Shark Tank- Service Style last Wednesday. Individuals and teams presented seven different organizations that were special to them. The Kids Care Club advisors and our special guest Judges- Dr. Henrikson, Mrs. Merlo, & Mrs. Finnegan (thank you, judges!) were all extremely impressed with the research, ideas and sentiment the children put into their presentations. Originally, we thought we could only choose to fund three projects, but thanks to the success of the book sale and our pizza lunches, we were able to fund ALL of them! Here’s what is happening thanks to these awesome presentations!
Elianna D. – a $100 donation will be made to the Forest Preserve District of Dupage
Amber H., Charlotte B., & Camden G.- a $100 donation will be made to the The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
Matthew M.- a $100 donation will be made to Cadence Care Club to purchase cleats and uniforms for underprivileged children who want to play soccer
Madison C. & Willa B.- a $100 donation will be made to Project Hopeful and our end of the year shoe drive will benefit this organization in Ethiopia.
Harlan A. & Addison L.- Hephzibah- New slippers & baked treats will be provided for 16 children living in this home for abused and neglected children.
Ava & Charlie G.- Pajama Program- New pajamas and bedtime stories will be collected to ensure that every child sleeps tight at night.
