Kind Kids: Ways Children Can Volunteer

Circle the City has a program called Kind Kids that enables children to help our organization.

Age restrictions prohibit children from volunteering at our clinics but there are other ways that they can help.

A few of our Kind Kids have raised money at their schools, set up donation drives, or held bake sales in their neighborhoods.

Please contact us if you have a child who would like to help Circle the City.

Donations can be dropped off to our Admin Office at: 300 W. Clarendon Avenue, Suite 200, Phoenix, AZ 85013.

Children who volunteer will receive a “Kind Kids” certificate of gratitude.
