Kids Rock is our current Community Event! We are donating $50,000 to summer camps across the country.
Behind the idea
District Manager Brian Bickford has worked with Camp Quality in St Joseph, Missouri for several years, even before he started working at TCC. This camp is for any kid up to age 17 who currently has or has had cancer. It’s a week for them to get away and have fun! Brian’s neighbor was diagnosed with cancer at a very young age and attended Camp Quality for several years.
After seeing the impact this camp had firsthand, he started volunteering at the camp every summer serving meals. Brian brought his passion for Camp Quality to TCC and it has since spread throughout his region. Serving meals at camp is now the event employees in Missouri help with every year!
Kids Rock is a flexible event, and like the name says, it aims to support anything involving children. We were inspired by how much Brian and the Missouri team looked forward to volunteering at camp every summer. That’s why we decided this year that Kids Rock would support summer camps like Camp Quality. Last year for the Kids Rock Community Event, we supported foster care agencies across the country.
We’re happy to help
Everyone knows this past year has been tough. That’s why we’re excited to be able to help kids have fun this summer by supporting these summer camps around the country. Following a year of limited social interactions, this year’s summer camps are going to be such a relief for kids and parents alike!
These camps are each getting a $2,000 donation to use as they see fit.
