The Kids Being Kids (KBK) program wrapped up another amazing season.
There was never any shortage of food thanks to Harvest Algoma’s dedication to providing healthy lunches and snacks through the Every Breakfast Counts initiative.
The Second Line KBK had a great summer, enjoying events such as Entomica Insectarium, water fights, and dance parties.
The Hamilton Heights children loved playing tennis and making crafts in the park and by the end of the summer, they had a great turnout each week.
Rosedale found the key to their success was the practice of using small groups, grouping children with similar interests and allowing these groups to spread out in the different areas.
At Adrian Drive, the students’ positive attitudes and interactions with the children gave them a meaningful experience and helped them to get the most out of their summer!
The camaraderie and respect between tenants and children blossomed into a great helping community at Boston Avenue.
Shannon Capp’s nearby field trips highlighted a change in the children’s mannerisms and showed that they flourish when you bring them outside of their home environments.
All the children in our six KBK locations ended the summer prepared for school with their new backpacks and school supplies thanks to the Back to School with Social Services event.
We’d like to thank our many partners in the community who helped make many of these events happen for the KBK kids.
Overall, KBK had a very memorable and successful summer!
