Each year an initiative called Step Up For Kids brings together thousands of people nationwide to show widespread support for young children and families. Events across the nation raise awareness about issues children face such as access to quality early care and learning, poverty, child abuse and neglect, and access to quality health care. The idea of the initiative is to educate those in attendance about these challenges and how important it is for communities to continue to invest in children.
This Friday, October 21, 2016, make plans to attend Thrivalaska’s Step Up For Kids event in Fairbanks from 5:30 – 7:30 pm at the Carol Brice Family Center. In conjunction with Step Up For Kids, Thrivalaska will celebrate its 42nd birthday and host a family fun night with activities for children, food, drawings, and a silent auction.
