Celebrate Global Youth Service Day by helping us "Stuff the Bus" for our troops!

In celebration of Global Youth Service Day kids and their families are invited to join Festival of Children Foundation and Team Kids for "Letters from Home," an afternoon designed to set the record for the most cards written to our troops in one afternoon.

Kids of all ages will meet in South Coast Plaza's Carousel Court and be given art supplies to create their cards.  The goal is to "stuff the bus" - Team Kids' little military bus - which will be parked out at the Z'Tejas restaurant entrance off of Bristol Street.  Operation Gratitude will handle distributing the cards to the troops. 

The day will conclude with a Presidential Award being given to middle school and high school members of the Team Kids Youth Council for outstanding service.  Uniformed soldiers and officers will also be on hand for photo opportunities and to interact with the crowd.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, April 27th from Noon - 4:00 p.m. at South Coast Plaza's Carousel Court.  3333 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA  92626
