Kids Taking Action

Kids Taking Action is an important mission of the Burrito Boyz organization and one we take very seriously. Each week our team of student volunteers demonstrates the willingness to take action and the desire to make a difference in the life of someone else. Our young volunteers are very dedicated and quite passionate in what they do. They are an amazing group of kids! Hunter, one of our volunteers, recently suggested that for his birthday he would like to have friends and family donate something he could bring to the Burrito Boyz. So last Sunday he came bearing gifts – money, personal hygiene products, food, and his birthday story. Thank you, Hunter, for being the amazing person you are! You are truly a kid taking action!!!

Thanks to Einstein Bagels for their generous donation of bagels each Sunday. Having bagels to distribute every week enhances what we are able to offer to the downtown homeless community. Thanks, Einstein!!!

Our Kidz Korner continues to be a very popular spot at our first stop downtown. Thanks to our volunteers Terry, McKayla, Aurora, and Shelby who make this a happy place for the children we serve. Thank you to all who have donated games, books, and art supplies to our Kidz Korner. We truly appreciate your generosity and want you to know how much the children enjoy your gifts each Sunday. Thanks to Rosie who sent a batch of cupcakes last weekend!!! Our boxes of children’s books are less full these days and our source of donated books is no more. If you have children’s books you would like to donate, please contact us at michael@burritoboyz.org.
