Benevilla is seeking donations for Healthy & Happy Kids Packs to be distributed to local grandparent caregivers.
Benevilla’s Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program, a part of the Family Resource Center and funded by a grant from First Things First, serves close to 70 families in the West Valley. Many of these wonderful grandparent caregivers could use a little support providing some of the basics (and some of the fun stuff) for their grandchildren.
Each Healthy & Happy Kids Pack will include: non-fluoride toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, shampoo, washcloth, brush/comb, sunscreen, toys, book / coloring book, and crayons / markers / colored pencils.
Donations can be made at any Benevilla program site and Birt’s Bistro.
A packing party will be held on Saturday, June 13, 9:00-11:00 AM, on the main Benevilla campus located at the Hellen & John M. Jacobs Independence Plaza, 16752 N. Greasewood Street in Surprise. The event will feature local entertainment, light refreshments, and a chance to meet Ms. Arizona, Melissa Mason.
For more information, please call Linda Celaya, Benevilla director of volunteer services, at 623-584-4999.
