One hundred kids with $10 each will decide on a charity to donate their money to, as part of the sixth 100 kids who care.

On Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., they will gather the Blue Grass Garden Center for the meeting. There three presentations will be made by local charities and the children vote on which charity they will donate the money to.

Kids will also have help from Blue Grass staff to design and plant a hanging basket that the child will eventually gift to someone they care about in the community.

“One of our greatest pleasures as a company is our ability to give to our community,” said Bruce McEwen, Blue Grass Sod Farms and Garden Center owner. “We are excited for the children to experience the pride and joy that will accompany sharing the basket they create.”

Red Deer 100 kids who care is sponsored by Dance Magic Studio.
