Our bus was stuffed with 2000+ toys, which helped bring smiles to many of the 1 in 5 children who live below the poverty line in Orange, Ventura, Riverside, Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties.

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.”
