Kyrene de los Cerritos elementary students made appreciation cards for Ahwatukee’s firefighters and police officers. It took about a month for the students to make appreciation cards for more than 100 firefighters and 40 police officers in the area. Each card was made using the child’s handprint and their own personal note of why they are thankful for firefighters and police officers.

The Kid’s Care Club is more than just an arts and crafts club, students are educated on why they are doing a project and who the recipient is of their services. Kari Watson, lead parent volunteer, comes up with fun and creative projects that the kids know why they are leaders and what they say matters.

Cerritos students delivered the cards to Fire Station 43 on March 27.
