Show a family you care.

Care Kits are filled with practical resources and fun activities to help ease a CityKidz family’s financial hardship and bring a little extra fun and hope into their lives.

For low-income families, making ends meet can become an all-consuming challenge that leaves little space for anything else, including rest, healing, and hope.

Together, we can show children and families that they are not forgotten, that they are known and loved. By supporting children and families with the resources they need, they can begin to move beyond day-to-day survival towards hope, planning and possibility.

Each Care Kit comes packed with:

School Supplies

Fun Activities

Healthy Food

Grocery Gift Cards

Covid-19 Safety Essentials

Feminine Hygiene Kit

$50

Covers all the school supplies and fun activities for a CityKidz Care Kit.

$100

$200

Provides an overflowing Care Kit for a Hamilton Family in need.

Our hope is to fulfil practical needs, remind families that they are loved and create more time for faith, hope, love, and family.

Every year, we give our oldest KinderKidz a special teddy bear to celebrate their graduation from the program.

As we were handing off a teddy bear, along with several lunch packs, to one KinderKidz graduate, Louise*, we had the chance to chat a bit with her mother, Judith. Through our conversation, Judith explained that she was so relieved for the lunches. Her kitchen was empty and she didn’t know if they’d have any other food through the weekend.

Heartbroken by her situation, we knew we had to help. Thankfully we had an extra Care Kit on hand. It was full of food, a grocery gift card, kid-friendly activities, and all kinds of other treats and daily essentials that could provide a little support to get them through the weekend.

With your support, we can help 100 more families like Louise and Judith’s get through tough times and feel a sense hope and possibility for the future.
