Street Kids Care: Changing lives since 2006.

Huge Day for Kids at Boys and Girls Club in South Bend

South Bend, IN - 12/12/08

With Mother Nature showing her powerful reign over the weather on Saturday, members of Street Kids Care spent part of the day at the Boys and Girls Club in South Bend, looking to put some smiles on the faces of some local children this holiday season.

Thanks to donations of some toys, the SKS team was able to make the holiday a little brighter for over 30 kids as the team handed out the gifts and spent close to two hours playing dodge ball, kick ball, whiffle ball and basketball.

"Today was a chance for our team to come out here and spend some time with these kids and maybe bring some excitement into their lives," said TJ Jorgensen of Street Kids Care. "I think the players had a lot of fun, also!"

Approximately 16 members of the SK organization was on hand to spend time with the kids and help hand out gifts. To get a better feel of what the day was like, see more pictures on Facebook.

The Boys and Girls Club of St. Joe County benefited from the Street Kids Softball team visiting them on a cold day in December of 2008. The SKS team played whiffle ball, basketball, dodge ball and handed out some Christmas gifts to over 30 young people of South Bend.
