Hunt County is an area comprised of several small towns that span an area of 882 square miles and has a population of over 90,000.
60% of the students in Hunt County are considered economically disadvantaged by the Texas Education Agency.
Many of these children live in dire and unbelievable conditions. And the need here continues to grow.
We work very closely with local schools, churches, and local agencies to address the needs of the children that are not being met by other available services.
We work hand in hand with other organizations to assist families in need with utility bills, clothing, food, school supplies, Christmas, medications, baby food, diapers, car seats, coats, shoes, blankets and the list goes on...
Hunt County Kids' mission is to help meet the needs of underprivileged children. Beds are the number one need for children in CPS cases. Our goal is to prevent children from having to be removed from their home because of a physical necessity and to assist children who are placed in foster care or kinship placements.
This annual bed build is in Channing Edwards' honor. Message from her mother: For those of you who knew Channing well, you know how much this girl LOVED her cozy bed and you know how appropriate it is that my sweet girl's legacy be to help other kids in need get the beds they don't have.
*Volunteers to help build. You don't have to have experience, but if you are a builder that's great too!
*Volunteers with trucks to transport to our storage facility after the build.
*Twin mattresses ($80 at BoxDrop Greenville), waterproof mattress covers, and bedding. We will also do the shopping for you if you'd like to donate! Please notate that your donation is for the bed build.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community. Your contribution today helps us make a difference.
