Kids Who Care
You can become a Winnipeg Harvest kid who cares! Collect tins of food at school, birthday parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Christmas parties and other celebrations; donate time or money and you can become part of our team as a “Kid Who Cares”.
Youth under the age of 18 can become a Kid Who Cares by meeting the following criteria:
|Age||Pounds Donated||Volunteer Hours||Money Donated|
|0 – 5 yrs||5 lbs||5 hours||$5.00|
|6 – 12 yrs||10 lbs||10 hours||$10.00|
|13 – 15 yrs||20 lbs||20 hours||$20.00|
|16 – 17 yrs||30 lbs||30 hours||$30.00|
Each April, Kids Who Care are invited to a special celebration at Winnipeg Harvest. Each child receives a specially designed pin and certificate to recognize their contribution.
Kids Who Care was set up by Ron and Eunice O’Donovan on April 1, 2001. It recognizes the many wonderful ways that local young people give to Harvest. Youth are an important part of the Winnipeg Harvest team!
