StandUp For Kids

Every year the middle school families of OTA take an active part in community outreach by providing meals for the homeless kids at StandUp For Kids Center here in San Diego.We are committed to providing a home cooked meal for the kids once a month during the school year.At this time we need volunteer families to provide meals for the following dates: Feb. 28, Mar 28, Apr 25, and May 23. I ask you to seriously consider volunteering your family to provide one of the meals. The meal you provide needs to feed approximately 20 kids. If your family can provide a meal for one of these dates, or you would like more information before making a decision, please email me at [email protected]
Thank you for helping your kids help other kids who desperately need our help.
