During the pandemic, Mission Possible Kids (MPK), a nonprofit that empowers children and teens to become agents of change in the world by helping others, is finding ways to keep kids involved in serving others. The nonprofit organization is currently offering two service projects that can be done from home.
The “Heart Pillows Kit” creates two no-sew cuddly pillows for kids going through difficult times while in hospitals or shelters. The “Warm Wishes for Wounded Soldiers Kit” enables kids and parents to write personalized messages of support on quilt squares that will be later sewn into patriotic quilts for soldiers at 70 combat hospitals overseas.
“Parents are asking for new and different things to do with their kids right now,” said Kathy Meadows, founder and director of MPK. “MPK At Home is just one more way we can help kids make an impact in the community while helping parents reinforce the values they want to see in their kids.”
Both projects come with all the supplies that children need to create the gift, and once they have completed the pillows or quilt squares, they can be mailed or dropped off to the chosen recipient. Children do not have to be members of MPK to participate.Mission Possible Kids >
