School Supply Fundraiser Canceled

Dear Supporters,

Rollo’s Kids Foundation would like to thank you sincerely for your generous donations and/or support of our organization. Unfortunately, due to a lack of sufficient corporate sponsorships, we are unable to fund our School Supply Supper and Silent Auction event, scheduled on July 26, and are therefore, canceling the fundraiser.

We will continue our efforts to provide the kids of hard-working, low-earning families of Corpus Christi with school supplies, clothes and shoes for this upcoming school year through various partnerships and small fundraisers throughout the summer and we hope that you will continue to join us in this effort, as your support is so evidently needed.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Rollo’s Kids Easter Eggstravaganza

Our first annual Easter Eggstravaganza was a great success thanks to all the volunteers, sponsors, donators, and partners who supported us every step of the way. With the community’s support and generous donations, we were able to provide each child with an Easter basket full of cascarones, candy, and a board game, as well as a pair of new shoes and a new outfit. The families were also treated to sandwiches and cupcakes, pictures and a bunny hop dance with the Easter Bunny, a beautiful performance by our partners, the Texas Coastal Bend Bellydancers Association (TCBBA), and an Easter egg hunt.

Many of our families and volunteers had never visited the Botanical Gardens before and we thank them for allowing us to host our Easter event at the Rose Pavilion and showcase all the hard work they do for environmental conservation. We hope everyone had fun and we look forward to planning our next event!
