Serve for Kids
Yes, we can prevent child abuse!
Serve for Kids is a full day event that raises awareness and funds to treat and prevent child abuse and neglect in Southwest Michigan. Did you know that 17 cases of child abuse and neglect are reported EVERY DAY in Kalamazoo County alone?
The Serve for Kids event begins in the morning with a tennis clinic for our S.T.R.E.E.T. program participants, where they receive instruction and time on the court to learn about tennis. Each boy receives a "Swag Bag" with items generously donated from Swag Bag sponsors. Each pack contains new tennis shoes, hygeine products, school supplies, snacks, clothing, and more!
In the afternoon, adult tennis and pickleball play takes place followed by a dinner and live and silent auction. All proceeds benefit the S.T.R.E.E.T. program and the Bill Wright Children's Advocacy Center at the Community Healing Centers.
