Kids Helping Kids

 

 

Kids Helping Kids is the longest running service project/fundraiser in Oklahoma 4-H history, and it's easy to see why! Over the past 30 years, Oklahoma 4-H has raised more than $890,000 through this service project/fundraiser, during which 4-H'ers across the state of Oklahoma have pounded the pavement asking friends, neighbors, local businesses and caring strangers for donations in exchange for a coupon to participating McDonald’s restaurants in Oklahoma. Of the funds raised through this campaign, one third remains in each county's 4-H program, one sixth goes to the Oklahoma 4-H Foundation, and half is given to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oklahoma City, a non-profit that provides a "home away from home" for families with seriously ill or injured children who are receiving medical treatment in the OKC area.
