ABOUT US

Mission

The mission of the Kids4Kindness Morris County 4-H Club is for children and parents to work together to raise awareness and spread kindness throughout the community.

Who we are

Kids4kindness is community service based club. 

The Kids4Kindness began under the umbrella of a Parent Teacher Association in October 2012 as a way to spread kindness throughout the school community. It was created as a way for children to make a difference in the community that we live in. Children who take time to be kind and help others are more independent, have better self-esteem and succeed in school.

Since then, it has expanded to include all children from kindergarten through one year post high school as a Morris County, NJ 4H Club. This move allowed the club to broaden its horizons and make a more significant impact on the surrounding community while including a more diverse group of students in its membership.

The club has made an effort to have its impact felt by different groups within the community by completing numerous projects.
