August 2018 National Newsletter


As the summer wraps up and kids get ready to head back to school, StandUp For Kids volunteers are gearing up to help motivate our kids to prioritize their schoolwork again and to re-focus on planning for their futures.

For some college students that we serve, returning to school means more financial pressure and a constant struggle to support themselves while pursuing a degree.

With locations in 18 cities across 11 states, we serve a variety of different age groups and are there to help youth through the different stages and milestones in their lives. But we really couldn’t do it without you! Donate now or learn more about how you can get involved.



We are constantly surprised and touched by the thoughtfulness of our donors and volunteers.

The Cockerham family reached out to the StandUp For Kids in Kitsap County, Washington to ask what they could do to help. Kitsap’s Executive Director Margaret Rodriguez told them, “We are always in need of food because we are giving out about 1,200 bags of food  a month.” A couple days later, the family called back and said the family had worked together to build 40 bags of food and was ready to deliver them.

Mr. Cockerham and his two children came to hand deliver the bags they put together for us. "We just wanted to help,” he said. They went on online to find out what they should include in the bags, and the Cockerham children added a few special things they thought the kids would enjoy.

Even though they didn’t do this for recognition, we wanted to share how thankful we are for them and for all of you who make it possible to end the cycle of youth homelessness. We are now 40 meals closer to ensuring bellies are fed and kids can move from surviving to thriving!

If you’re looking to get involved but unsure how you can contribute, here are some different ways you can help.


The StandUp For Kids - Orange County program is helping kids open their minds to the possibility of starting their own businesses.

The Entrepreneur class runs for about 14 weeks and has have two sessions per year. The most recent group of future business leaders started this month.

There are lots of ways you can get more involved, from volunteering as a mentor, asking your company to sponsor, donating items, or supporting us financially.
