K4K is affiliated with the Trumbull County Community Foundation, a philanthropic 501© non-profit organization. The goal of the program is to develop positive experiences, relationships, and respect between community leaders and our youth. Over $28,000 worth of outerwear has been distributed to the children in our community.
This year’s jacket giveaway was not disrupted by COVID-19; the distribution of coats was just a little different this year. Jackets were delivered to Hubbard Elementary School and distributed to EVERY 1st grade student by teachers and school administration. Normally, representatives of local government, police officers of both the City and Township Departments, fire fighters, local businesses and other groups would help with distribution. A letter was included with each jacket since our officials were not able to personally be there for the delivery, “As you know your 1st grade teachers all love and care about you and so does your whole community. Please wear your coat proudly and every time you put it on you’ll get that warm feeling, so remember it’s like a hug from so many people that love and care about you”.
This is another example of the uniqueness of the Hubbard Community! If you are able to help K4K continue this tradition, please make your (tax deductible) check payable to Kommunity 4 Kids and mail it to the Trumbull County Community Foundation, 7 West State Street, Suite 301, Sharon, PA 16146 or it can be mailed to K4K, 2616 North Main Street, Hubbard, OH, 44425.
