Welcome to Kindness for Kids!
Kindness for Kids, Inc. was established in 1994 as an all-volunteer charitable organization for the sole purpose of helping less fortunate children in Oneida County receive the spirit of the holiday season. It began with a vision of helping out local children by inspiring the collective spirit of our community. Kindness for Kids coordinated the placement of toy collection boxes at area merchants and businesses, which has become a visual connection for our community during the Christmas season. The donated toys are collected, sorted, and distributed right back into the community from which the generosity was propagated. One hundred percent of the toys and money collected each year goes back into this effort to improve the lives of our local children. Kindness for Kids also provides stuffed animals to the Oneida County Domestic Abuse Shelter, the Oneida County Sheriff’s Department, the Rhinelander Police Department and the Oneida Rescue Squad to comfort children who are in crisis all year long.
Kindness for Kids is made up of volunteers who make it possible to continue our vision. As a community based organization, we are continuously searching for ways to help needy children and families who are burdened by circumstances beyond their control.
