Team Kids Year End Carnival is this Sunday June 23 from 3-6pm at Heritage Park in Irvine.
Team Kids is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspire and empower young people to become resilient and responsible citizens with a passion for community service. Their school-based program called the "Team Kids Challenge" teaches elementary students that they can make a difference by organizing fundraisers and donation drives to benefit those in need.
OCSD was proud to partner with Team Kids for our pilot program this year at Trabuco Mesa Elementary in Rancho Santa Margarita. The Trabuco Mesa Bulldogs were incredibly successful- they donated more than 2,000 books, filled two vans with clothes and toys, made more than 600 Valentines for troops overseas, and most amazingly raised $1,692 at their self-run carnival.
Team Kids Year End Carnival will celebrate the accomplishments of all the participating schools for the 2012/13 school year and connect families with nonprofit organizations looking for summer volunteers.
Carnival admission is free, carnival tickets are just $.25 each, and the BBQ dinner is $5. OCSD will have a carnival booth with Jr. Deputy stickers, along with our other public safety partners. For more info, visit www.teamkids.org
