“Kids on a Quest” Gives Kids a Way to Do Community Service

“Kids on a Quest” Helping to put smiles on people’s faces through random acts of kindness.

 

It’s hard to find volunteering opportunities for young children in New Jersey. I found a great volunteer club called “Kids on a Quest”. “Kids on a Quest” was founded by a now 17-year-old girl, named Katelyn Darrow who is also the founder of the non-profit organization called, Angels of God Clothing Closet in Pitman, New Jersey.

 

Once a month “Kids on a Quest” meet at Pitman Manor to do random deeds and acts of kindness. This month, my three children ages 8, 5 and 3  each made multiple St. Patrick Day cards for their teachers, garbage men, mail men, and our elderly neighbors.

This month we made St. Patrick's Day cards with little pots of "gold"

What I hope my children and other children will gain from their community service experiences:

  • It is better to give than to give.
  • No matter how old or young, rich or poor I can help someone! (Katelyn was just 12-years-old when she founded this non-profit organization!)
  • As Katelyn Darrow has quoted, Jet Li “I believe the world is one big family, and we need to help each other.” And I can only hope her generosity, thoughtfulness, and genuineness will touch those all around her.

 

Angel of God’s Kid’s on a Quest meets the 1st Wednesday of the month (unless a holiday falls on this day) at Pitman Manor from 6pm to 7pm. Registration is requested. The Pitman Manor, located at 535 N. Oak Ave. Pitman, NJ, graciously donates their space for the cause.

 

Follow Kids on a Quest so you can sign up for the next volunteer meeting!
