Summertime is something most children look forward to for many reasons. Children are out of school, have full days to play and many look forward to family vacations. As a child, I was always happy for summertime to roll around. We made many plans about how we would spend our days and played many of them away. As children, we tend to be quite carefree. That is not the case for all children. That is where Champions for Kids comes into play.
The core values of Champions for Kids are simple, yet profound, and drive their efforts to “mobilize millions” to help children — All children should have: Someone who cares; a Place to belong; Hope for tomorrow and provisions for their journey. All children.
Having partnered with Champions for Kids several times in the past, I was excited to learn of their new Simple Service Project. This month, Champions for Kids and Walmart are joining with sponsors Tyson, Birds Eye, and State Fair brands for the Summer of Giving Project, to help provide 5 million meals to hungry kids. The statistics show that there are millions of children in households where food is not consistently available. That is such a sad thought!

The Simple Service Projects are always a fantastic way to get involved to help those in our local communities!
I checked with our local food bank to ensure they accepted frozen food donations. Then we headed into Walmart to shop for our Simple Service donation in Walmart. It is amazing how much you can stretch a small amount of money. I feel good about donating frozen vegetables to the local food bank.
It is easy to get involved! Think of just how simple it is to make a difference!
