Proceeds will be used to support the Pat Reeves Village Shelter, which provides life-changing services to families with children who are either homeless or at risk for homelessness.

Kids Helping Kids starts to teach philanthropy at an early age and teaches children to help other children less fortunate through hands-on projects and events. The program takes place at the Pat Reeves Village Shelter in West Palm Beach, the only emergency homeless shelter in Palm Beach County for families with children.

The Center for Family Services is a 51-year-old, nonprofit social services organization whose mission is strengthening families through counseling, education and homeless intervention.
