OUR STORY

AboutKidz was established in December 2010 when a small group of volunteers wanted to make a difference in the lives of children in our local community. At our first back-to-school event (First Day), 125 low-income and at-risk elementary age children received backpacks filled with materials needed to successfully start their first day of school. AboutKidz has since added the Game Day and Graduation Day programs, and now almost 1,000 children receive back-to-school backpacks and other items at First Day.


AboutKidz is unique in that we don't give hand-outs, we give a hand-up. Our philosophy at AboutKidz is to create events where we not only reach out to children, but to the entire family. It is our goal that our volunteers personally connect with each family member in an effort to make sure they feel welcomed and cared for.

Game Day

AboutKidz believes that every child deserves the opportunity to play organized sports, and that social, emotional, physical, and intellectual skills can be improved through team sports. The Country Club Optimist Club has been our Game Day sponsor since 2016. Their generous support covered all costs associated with the teams, including: league fees, uniforms, equipment, transportation, snacks, trophies, and the end-of-season team parties. Because of that support, over 100 children who otherwise only dreamed of playing on a team, have been able to have that dream come true. The AboutKidz coaches and players spend an average of three months together but the impact on the players and their families lasts far beyond the length of the season.

Toy Drives

For the past four years AboutKidz has organized toy drives in December and donated the toys to organizations that distribute them to families in need. Volunteers collect, sort, wrap, and deliver the gifts. We have a wonderful partnership with Sacramento area Walmart stores that allow us to collect toys in front of over ten stores each year. So far we have collected and distributed over 3,000 toy donations.

First Day

 First Day provides the opportunity for almost 1,000 low-income and at-risk children to begin their school year with confidence and enthusiasm. Our First Day event has a festive atmosphere with lots of games and activities for the whole family. Each registered child that attends the First Day event receives a backpack filled with school supplies, a haircut from a licensed professional, and a new outfit of shirt, pants, and shoes. Each family in attendance receives a bag of non-perishable food items to take home with them after the event.


OUR MISSION

AboutKidz is a 501(c)(3) organization established to meet the practical needs for underprivileged children in our communities in an effort to create equal opportunities for academic and athletic excellence. We focus on addressing the most basic needs of low-income and at-risk children in order to make the biggest impact on families in our community.
