On Tuesday, October 7, volunteers will blanket the community in an effort to make a positive difference in the lives of children as part of Kids Day.
Kids Day is a community event to raise public awareness and funds to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children and is sponsored the Sacramento Bee in partnership with the Ben Ali Shriners and Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Volunteers take to street corners, schools, shopping malls and other locations to sell a special Kids Day edition of The Sacramento Bee that highlights the patients and programs of Shriners Hospitals for Children. The Kids Day papers sell for $1, and 75-cents of each dollar directly benefits Shriners Hospitals for Children.
“On Kids Day, people of all ages and from all walks of life have an opportunity to help transform the lives of children one dollar and one newspaper at a time,” said Margaret Bryan, administrator for Shriners Hospitals for Children in Sacramento. “This event allows us to tell our special story and reach out to thousands of families who can benefit from the expert medical care provided by Shriners Hospitals.”
