Villa Park Elementary Students Learn the Value of Community Citizenship

Villa Park, CA – May 30, 2019 – The Team Kids program has encouraged Villa Park Elementary’s students to work collaboratively, think critically and creatively towards a common goal that supports our community.

Students have spent the past five weeks making a difference by tackling the needs of their community one week at a time. The first week, students collected gently used towels and blankets for a local animal shelter,  followed by the collection of hygiene items for the Illumination Foundation during week two. Week three, students gathered food items for South County Outreach, a local non-profit organization fighting to end hunger and homelessness in Orange County.

Additionally, over 75 fourth-through-sixth-grade students volunteered to be part of the Team Kids Leadership Team. This team created a student-run carnival and raised $1,425.47 for a local animal shelter.

Villa Park Elementary students, working with local police officers, firefighters, and Team Kids coaches, have been learning that they are not too young to change the world.
