WALK FOR HOPE
On Saturday, October 5, 2013 we held our annual Walk for Hope at Washington Lake Park in Sewell NJ. We had a good response for the walk even though it felt more like August than October. Once again, Chick Fil A of Mantua Square provided lunch for the walkers. This year their mascot was there as well. Shobo the Clown came to entertain young and old alike prior to the walk. We had about ten youth from the Kids Alley program join us to Walk for Hope in the City of Camden that they call home. Deb Baldasarre, a volunteer and member of our Resource and Development Team has been coordinating this walk for many years.
Our goal is to one day see hope restored to each person in each house, and on every block in the City of Camden. The children, youth, and adults that come to our program are seeking life and hope. We want to be there to bring relief, restoration, and to see real growth in their lives. We thank our T-shirt sponsors, donors, and supporters for making a difference in the lives of these families. Check out the pictures on our special events page.
KIDS ALLEY SATURDAY LIVE OFFERS NEW PROGRAMS
Saturday Live has moved and expanded. We now meet at 18 White Horse Pike Haddon Heights NJ 08035. The Saturday program now offers something for children three years old through adult. Our campus opens at 10:45 am with breakfast for everyone. We have time to celebrate together and then we break into small groups depending upon age. Mentoring groups available for teen girls, Girl Talk and for teen boys we have Man Up. Parents gather to study the Bible, encourage one another in parenting issues, and classes on life skills will be taught periodically. We dismiss at 12:45 and each child gets a lunch to take home. Come join the family and have fun.
Saturday Live at Kids Alley
In 1998, founder and director Vivian Tan developed a unique and interactive high-energy program for ages 3-12 on Saturday mornings for the children of Camden, New Jersey. Kids Alley hosts a creative blend of living arts presentations, educational and academic support, nutritional provisions and leadership development. Our mission is to embrace all children with God’s love and to empower them with His Word.
KIDS ALLEY LEARNING CENTER
The children are excited to be at our larger campus. There is room for quiet reading, individual classrooms for different age groups to work on their homework, a computer lab, and a large hall for indoor play when the weather keeps us inside.
We are excited this year to have a reading specialist volunteer with us a few days a week and another teacher from Florence NJ is volunteering to help us use Study Island, a web based NJ Core Curriculum program to its fullest.
The children will be attending Duffield Farms in Sewell on Friday, October 19 and the older boys will be taking a field trip to Miss Annie’s for pizza and play time with some of the male tutors from the learning center. These high school students are wonderful mentors and examples to the younger boys.
We will soon be starting In 2 Books, a web based literacy program for third through sixth grade students. We want to thank United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern NJ for this wonderful opportunity for the second year. Each student receives a book of their own and once read they have an approved on line mentor that they can discuss the book with. This program builds on their reading skills, reading comprehension, and their writing skills
