Kids for Kindness

Kids for Kindness is a program created to teach our children the importance of gratitude and giving. Each year we'll donate our time and efforts to helping a local community charity.

This is typically the time of year when we start thinking about what we are grateful for and showing our loved ones how much we appreciate them. With that said, it is the perfect time to teach our children the value of giving to others and the importance of gratitude for what they have.

KIDS FOR KINDNESS
is about teaching our children those very things as well as giving them the chance to give back to their community. Starting NOVEMBER 7th, we will be collecting canned goods and other items for a wonderful foundation right here in Huntington Beach called Project Self Sufficiency. They have been helping Huntington Beach low income single parent families for over 25 years. Their goal is to provide assistance in many different ways including education to give these parents a career path so they become financially independent with great jobs to support their families without government assistance.

We have placed DONATION BOXES outside of the School Office. I have included a list below of certain items that the PSS Food Pantry is in need of but any dried or canned foods in it's original package as well as toiletries will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much in advance for all of your support and donations! Please contact me if you have any questions or check out the Project Self Sufficiency website for more information about this foundation.
