Kids Care Club holds first event

Staff Report~ 12/10/2014

CAVE CREEK –Kids Care Club, a local non-profit dedicated to getting elementary and middle school students involved in volunteering, held its first event at the Kumon of Cave Creek. 

The talented Scooter Scott, children's entertainer, kicked off the event with a magic act.  After the show, parents and children decorated 150 dinner place mats for seniors at the Life Care Center of Paradise Valley.  Activity Director Lorna Mattox and Bill Rassekh Valley received the decorated placements on behalf of the center.  Mattox stated that the placemats brought back happy memories of parenting young kids around the holidays. The residents also enjoyed reading the reflection activity that asked members to either draw a picture of their favorite senior citizen or answer question about what they like most about senior citizens.

T. Dale Williams, Executive Director of Kids Club Care Cave Creek, stated, “We are so thrilled with our inaugural event. We had over 30 families take time out of their schedule to do something nice for someone else.  Developing a spirit of compassion in our young people is vitally important to our community.”
