Additional Information

Description

Local preschoolers from the Carrollton Early Childhood PTA are thinking outside of the sandbox and impacting the community as they prepare for their third annual North Texas Kidsgiving Day on Saturday, September 17. As a precursor to North Texas Giving Day (Sept. 22) Kidsgiving Day is an event dedicated to teaching kids about entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and giving back to the community.

The Carrollton Early Childhood PTA’s youngest members (with their parent assistants) will be setting up their very own lemonade-stand-style booths and selling a variety of products from cotton candy and hot dogs to homemade bows, handmade greeting cards, Texas-size treats, and more.

Come to support your community; stay for the fun, food, and entertainment! In the spirit of community, PLAY Lewisville on Wheels will be on-site hosting recreational games and activities alongside other family-friendly outdoor entertainment.

Leading up to the big event, these "kidpreneurs'' get to practice their entrepreneurial skills through age-appropriate financial literacy games and activities at CECTPA-sponsored meetings and playdates. Last year, the "kidpreneurs" raised over $5,000 and caught the attention of several local businesses who matched their efforts, significantly increasing the total for community giving. Over five hundred CECPTA families, friends, neighbors, community members, and even police officers from the Carrollton Police Department showed up in support.

Proceeds raised will be dedicated to enriching early childhood programming including CECPTA’s Preschool Community Development Grant, community gatherings for families, and outreach service opportunities that benefit the greater Carrollton area. Additionally, donations will benefit two community partners: Carrollton-Farmers Branch Education Foundation and Metrocrest Social Services.
