Stand Up For Kids

Here's another one I just remembered... There is a national organization called Stand Up For Kids. They assist teens who have terrible home lives. Often their parents are drug or alcohol dependent. They are always collecting items such as granola bars, fruit cups, exc. Here is a link to what they are usually looking for: http://www.standupforkids.org/sponsor/default.aspx
And here is the link to see if there is one near your community:

Our Kiwanis club supported the project by collecting the donated items and then our kids group at school filled backpacks with all of the donated supplies in them. I dropped them off at the location. It's difficult for kids to understand that there are homeless children in the world so this project had a big impact on them. I love the concept of kids helping kids so I try to keep all of my projects focused around that idea. Hope that helps too!

Sorry, I'm soooooooo lengthy!
