Kids-Giving Day at Red Mountain Library

Post Date:11/07/2017 5:19 PM
  • Lead Kids-Giving Day is Saturday, Nov. 18 from 10am to noon at Red Mountain Library, 635 N. Power Road. Kids will make activity bags for patients at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and create greeting cards for Operation Gratitude.

Celebrate the season of Thanksgiving by giving back to our community. Red Mountain Library, 635 N. Power Road, will host Kids-Giving Saturday, Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. to noon in the Program Room.

Kids will be making activity bags for patients at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and create greeting cards for Operation Gratitude. The Library will also be accepting donations of new, packaged baby wipes for Child Crisis Arizona.

“This is a fun way to engage kids directly in the practices of giving and kindness. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities available for grown-ups, but hands-on community service activities for children can sometimes be harder to find. On Kids-Giving Day, we’ll have three ways to help three different agencies. Even better, two of the three opportunities give kids the chance to help other kids,” Mesa Library Director Heather Wolf said.

No registration is required for Kids-Giving.
