Trinity Kids - and the 8th Annual Heart & Soul Charity Auction! Help the kids of North Texas today (or in your local community through RFKC)!

The kids of North Texas need your help!  If you're looking for somewhere to donate, and just haven't found an organization that touched you, read more about Trinity Kids and donate now or plan on attending the live/silent auction in February!
Trinity Kids is a 100% volunteer organization (no paid staff), so the maximum amount of each donation goes to the kids. Trinity Kids relies mainly on fund raising and one of their largest fund raising events is coming up on Saturday, February 5, 2011. The 8th annual Heart and Soul Charity Auction will be held at the Bob Duncan Recreational Center in Arlington, Texas from 6 – 9 p.m. Trinity Kids is in need of items to be donated for the auction, as well as people to come to the auction and buy the items.

Did you know that Texas Child Protective Services investigated over 50,000 reported cases of child abuse and neglect in the DFW Metroplex in 2009, including 61 deaths. Now, more than ever, children in North Texas desperately need help to overcome the scars of abuse, neglect and abandonment so that they can more fully live their lives without fear!

The Heart & Soul Charity Auction helps to increase awareness and raise money for abused, neglected and abandonded children of North Texas. All proceeds go to Trinity Kids, an all volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to meeting the needs of abused children through one week summer camps.

On average, Trinity Kids takes approximately 60 – 70 kids to camp each year and try to take equal numbers of boys and girls. Trinity Kids is always in need of men to be volunteers and often times can’t take as many boys as we would like because of a shortage of men volunteers. Unlike traditional camps that average 8 – 10 children per guide, each guide only has 2 children, so the guides can focus lots of attention on their campers, which they rarely get. All of the children at camp are either in Child Protective Services custody or have been in custody, and unfortunately the majority have been sexually abused.

You can donate to Trinity Kids through their web page.  Donate your time or contact me if you'd like to donate goods or services to the Heart & Soul Charity Auction!  Tickets to the Heart & Soul Charity Auction are only $15 per person. The event includes a catered dinner by Mercado Juarez, live entertainment by the Crosswinds Jazz Band, a silent auction and a live auction managed by professional auctioneer, Shawn Hardin.
