Thank you all for participating in this year’s K1Day! Please look forward to next year and keep serving and doing good for the community!
St. Jude’s Ranch for Kids BBQ
St. Jude’s Ranch for Kids provides aid to at-risk youth through various programs that “offer a continuum of care for children and families to help break the cycle of abuse and neglect by mending spirits and renewing hope.” Their campus in Boulder City, a sprawling 40 acres of property, needs constant maintenance from volunteers. This helps keeps funds from being spent on admin costs and redirects that to provide more care for the kids. Kiwanis will gather to provide landscaping and other beautification tasks around the campus.
In addition to this landscaping project, we will be sponsoring a luncheon for up to 80 of the youths enrolled in their programs and their youth care staff. We will host a BBQ for the youth as well as interact with them through games and arts and crafts.
If you wish to be part of this project, please contact Ryan of LVYP Kiwanis
Volunteers will be expected to wear close toed shoes and outfits made for outdoor work. Please consider wearing a Kiwanis or Kiwanis Family T-shirt to show your spirit. If you have outdoor work equipment (gloves, rakes, work boots, etc.) please bring that as well as we will not have enough for every volunteer.
