Project Description:

Davis' program, Kids 4 Kids, involved a variety of outreach programs by elementary students to homeless children, children in protective custody, and children afflicted with HIV and AIDS. Outreach efforts ranged from providing backpacks with basic school supplies, becoming pen pals with children living in shelters, and developing activity packets for hospitalized children in conjunction with holidays to serving as ambassadors to a local news station on topics related to children's issues.
