The BUS and its BUSY day!

The BUS and its BUSY day!

The bus made an appearance at 2 great city events today! First stop… the Tustin Police Department Open House where the city gathered together to celebrate their local heroes at Tustin PD. Last stop… Irvine DARE Movie Night where the kids in Irvine come to thank their DARE officers and to celebrate the year with a movie on the lawn. This year’s movie choice… Frozen! At both events, our bus served as a station for kids to come and write letters of thanks to their local public safety heroes. Fun day indeed!

Deerfield Elementary Carnival

Deerfield Elementary in Irvine, CA continues to deliver amazing Team Kids Challenge Programs year after year thanks to a tradition of amazing leadership from the STUDENTS, Principal Kathy McKeown and staff, and the unstoppable parent volunteer duo of Holiday and Sandi.

Thank you all for continuing to share your enthusiasm and support to empower the amazing students at Deerfield!

We salute the students at Meadow Park Elementary and our partners at Irvine Police Department and Orange County Fire Authority for the successful “STUFF THE BUS” event.  Our Team Kids Bus was stuffed with close to 1,200 new toys to bring joy to so many children in OC.  The incredible outpouring of generosity and giving was appreciated by all at the Honda Center, where the Bus was invited included in a live ABC7 news report.  Even Mighty Duck’s Wildwing was impressed with the outpouring of holiday spirit.   We salute the awesome Meadow Park Mustangs, IPD Sgt. Russell, DARE Officer Aragon,  OC Fire Authority Battalion Chief Kelly Zimmerman, and TK Board Member Nestor Herrera at REMAX Premier for making so many Christmas wishes come true! Continue reading


Today in Orange County, most of the work being done in health and human services focuses, appropriately, on the immediate needs of the disadvantaged. Team Kids takes a different approach, directing their energies toward our youth, teaching them the value and power of working together to solve community issues. In so doing, they are developing the philanthropists of the future and creating systematic change in our community.”

OC United Way, CEO Max Gardner

Team Kids is addressing critical child and community needs today, while also building our next generation of problem solvers.”

Dan Lubeck, Team Kids Board Member

I became a Founding Team Kids Board Member in 2004, after witnessing the leadership and compassion being developed in the students participating in the Team Kids Challenge Program. Team Kids engenders a culture where it is everyone’s right, regardless of age, to be a powerful agent for change.”

Bethany LaFlam, Team Kids Board Member

Team Kids, to me, is an antidote to entitlement and one great way to create the responsible citizens we all want as future leaders.”
