We have a 6 year old boy and we have been trying to get him involved in the community for a while but many places won't let younger kids volunteer. KSK has given us the opportunity to get involved and they make it easy to sign up. We have only participated in 2 events but on both occasions we (not just our 6 year old) love being and helping out within the community.

This is a great way for my son and I to bond over a common good while my husband is gone and we have so much extra time on our hands. It isn't always easy to get access to volunteer work individually but in a group like Kids Showing Kindness I feel like we are more accessible to the community in many other ways. Thank you for all you do! Looking forward to the next volunteer project we can help with!

My family just participated in our first event with Kidz Showing Kindness and we all loved it. We can't wait to volunteer for more events in our community. This is a great organization!

Just attended my 1st KSK event this weekend. I don't have small children any longer but attended with my grandchildren and their parents. We had an ice cream social for retirement home residents on Grandparent's Day. The entire event was well planned, well organized and well received! The interaction between the children and residents was wonderful to see and be a part of! A great event and organization! Can't wait for our next event!

As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who has worked with underprivileged families, disabled individuals, and people in need, I understand the importance of getting involved with organizations like KSK. My son had a great time and would like to continue volunteering. The event organizers were polite, passionate, and very organized.

Kidz Showing Kindness completed two painting projects for the City of Belleville Parks and Recreation Department in two different park locations. They were wonderful to work with on these projects. Communication with the coordinator was wonderful, and the work they completed was great. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any project you may be needing volunteers. Thanks!

Kidz Showing Kindness helped us with our annual Salute to Scott AFB family picnic. They came out after the event, which had 3,000 military and their families attend, and helped clean up the park.
We can always get volunteers to work our events, but clean up is always a problem! These kidz had no problem getting out there and lending a hand.

My daughter started volunteering with this organization when she was 2, assisting in a car wash to raise funds for the local food pantry. I think it's wonderful that there is an organization catering to family friendly volunteer activities that foster a sense of community service in our youth. Activities are always safe, cheap or free, and really make our kids think about the impact they can have through helping others.

As a clinical social worker by profession I have seen many struggling populations of people within our communities, which could benefit from a helping hand and community support. As a mom, I know that our children are our future leaders, community organizers and producers of positive change in the world around them. My goal in seeking a volunteer organization for my children was to find a safe, fun and educational organization, where my kids could gain exposure to other populations of people and circumstances while having an opportunity to think outside of themselves while contributing to the community around them. We have definitely found that in the compassionate and highly organized foundation of Kidz Showing Kindness. I would highly recommend anyone with the desire to have their children involved in an organization, which by default promotes confidence building, cultural awareness and compassion for human-kind, in addition to giving back to the community, to join or support Kidz Showing Kindness. It’s a blessing to the community, but also to the volunteers.

With so many obligations competing for our time, it is sometimes difficult to find time together as a family. Kidz Showing Kindness has helped us work on projects together as a family and give back to our community. There are various means for all ages to participate, and even if we can't make it for the day of the event, we can contribute in alternate modes. My son and daughter have even enjoyed working together on projects, and both look forward to helping others in many different ways.

Is there really any more important role we can play in our communities then raising our children to be goodwill ambassadors?! These children are learning that others may be less fortunate than they are in this often times selfish world. They're learning how to give without condition. They're seeing the world outside themselves. They are all being given the valuable opportunity to touch someone's life, often a total stranger, and see how big of an impact their small effort has made for someone else. There aren't enough adjectives to describe just how invaluable this organisation is to the community. Kudos to the tireless creators and organisers of this group! You are making a real difference in the lives of those you touch! We need this EVERYWHERE!

Kidz Showing Kindness is the most amazing organization I have ever been involved with. The concept behind the organization is to teach kids the importance of helping others in the surrounding communities. When we went to help feed people in need, I saw something amazing in our son. He was so caring and concerned about these people he didn't even know. He made sure everyone had enough to eat and drink; and he is very shy. That day, he bloomed! And all because of a caring mom that wanted to help teach children the importance of helping others.

Kids Showing Kindness is a wonderful organization for our community's children to get involved!! seeing a void in the area for younger kids to give back, KSK was started to bridge that gap. They work closely with many other non profits in the area and are growing every day. Most importantly, they get kids involved at a young age, setting the stage for life long volunteerism!
