KIC-nic Celebration!

September 23 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We are so grateful to all our families over this past year for the way each and every one of you have stepped up to continue serving our community during a pandemic! In many ways, our community partners have needed support more than ever. As we begin a new school year, we would like to thank all our KIC families and also welcome new families as KIC continues to grow in our mission of building relationships to strengthen our community through partnerships and service experiences.

We invite families to join us at Maslowski Park in Glendale for popsicles, kids activities and mingling on Thursday, September 23rd from 4-6pm. We will have tables at the Sprecher Outdoor Oasis that families can utilize along with open play at the amazing playground.

We will also be collecting school supplies for newly arriving refugees from Afghanistan. In partnership with Lutheran Social Services, we would like to help provide these children with some hope for a fresh start as they begin this journey far away from their home county. Blank cards will be provided to write messages of hope and love as we welcome them into our country and communities.

Purpose: Celebrate, welcome and thank KIC families for serving our community and growing seeds of hope and love in our young people and with our valued partners.

Impact: Families will come together in connection with KIC to share experiences with both new and familiar faces, feel valued and appreciated, and build a community that empowers our children to become changemakers in our world today.

Activities:

  • Cool off with a popsicle!

  • Try a henna tattoo painted by a local artist

  • Donate school supplies and create cards with messages of welcome and hope for newly arrived Afghan refugees.

  • Help make tie blankets for mothers and their families receiving services through Community Advocates

  • Learn about KIC and how you can get more involved!

  • Let kids run around at the amazing playground!
