Creek Kids Care was born out of two young children’s concern over one local homeless man’s wellbeing. These children decided they wanted to do something to make that one man’s life easier. Their friends joined in, and the group gradually grew throughout their school.
CKC now involves kids and teens throughout Walnut Creek and beyond. Many of the Creek Kids have been involved since CKC started in 2004. Through the art work they create, the Creek Kids provide practical support to local homeless community members as well as provide support to an orphanage in Mutoku Zimbabwe.
For the past seven years, Creek Kids and their families have participated in our Holiday Angel Project. The concept is similar to an “Adopt a Family”, but in this case participants sponsor a Trinity Center member for the holidays. In the past, families, friends, youth groups and Scout Troops have sponsored a Trinity Center member.
When you sponsor someone you will receive an individuals wish list. From there, you will shop for the person, wrap and deliver the gift to Trinity Center prior to December 23. If you are interested in sponsoring a Trinity Center member please contact Allison Ridenhour at firstname.lastname@example.org.
