Project Kids is an outreach program that began in 2000 to help in the support of children residing within the West Ada School District who are in need.
Working closely with the West Ada Administration Counseling Office, the monies we contribute provide basic needs after grants and other means of financial aid are exhausted, as well as scholarships for the Boys and Girls Club.
This year our church helps to deliver over 600 backpacks full of food each Friday to the different Ada County schools so kids have food for the weekend. Each school lets the teachers know that this program is available and teachers are to report to the school nurse or school counselor. Then the Back Pack program is notified and the children (each one if there are more than 1 child in the family) will receive food and assistance. So far this school year Project Kids has paid utility bills, rent, clothing, education expenses, gas, gift cards and more as we are notified as needs occur.
Each fall, Project Kids holds an annual Dinner & Auction Fundraiser. Please check out their Facebook page.
