The Berthoud CARES Kids Helping Kids Fund has been developed with the belief that even small amounts of money, carefully used, can have an important effect on someone's life.
Now funded, via support from the Berthoud community, this program will provide assistance for children and/or families within Berthoud, CO, who need to get through short-term crisis situations and who have needs that are not met by other public or private programs. This fund will allow for emergency one time grants only. The goal is to contribute to the well being of individuals.
A Berthoud CARES Kids Helping Kids Fund Committee has been developed within the structure of the Berthoud CARES organization. This committee will work on the solicitation of grants, the review of grants and the awarding of grant funding.
Requests for grant support must come through a Berthoud area school and/or social workers to the Berthoud CARES Kids Helping Kids Fund.
Individuals may not apply on their own behalf.
The Berthoud CARES Kids Helping Kids Fund will only issue payments to qualified vendors of applicants. Checks cannot be made directly to individuals.
Grants will be awarded between $100 and $500.
Donations of all sizes are accepted by Berthoud CARES to support the establishment and continuation of the Berthoud CARES Kids Helping Kids Fund.
Turner Middle School is the initial donor to the Kids Helping Kids Campaign. Pictured above are TMS Principal Bill Siebers and Bob Turner Classic Chair Curt Ranweiler as they present a check from the 2008 Bob Turner Classic to the Kids Helping Kids Campaign.
Berthoud CARES would like to thank the staff and students of Turner Middle School, Berthoud High School, Berthoud Elementary School and Ivy Stockwell Elementary School for their continued support of Berthoud CARES and the children of our community.
