/PRNewswire/ -- From raising money for a sick classmate through a lemonade stand to mowing the lawns of elderly neighbors free of charge, the good deeds of youth across America make the world a better place. Now Farm Rich, the popular frozen snacks and appetizers brand, plans to recognize these efforts through the launch of its Kids Who Give (www.kidswhogive.com) program.
"At Farm Rich, we want to keep people happy," explains Jennifer Meetz, Director of Marketing. "We have spoken with so many kids and parents who share that desire to spread happiness and help others. Kids Who Give highlights how the individual actions of youth can make a big difference."
Kids Who Give kicks off with a national contest to find outstanding adolescents with a strong understanding of the meaning and purpose behind giving to others. The effort is open to kids in the United States aged seven to seventeen that voluntarily donate their time to benefit local charities or individuals in need. Five winners will each receive a $300 gift card, $1,000 to contribute to the charities of their choice and a special Farm Rich care package. To learn more and view online entry forms, visit www.kidswhogive.com. Submissions will be accepted until June 15, 2010.
In addition to recognizing youth already involved, Kids Who Give aims to empower more adolescents and teens to pursue community outreach. The web site will feature practical tips and tools for getting started, interviews with kids and video diaries of the contest winners being active in their neighborhoods.
Kids Who Give is an integral part of the Farm Rich brand's commitment to bettering the communities they serve. Over the years, Farm Rich has supported individual sports leagues and volunteer organizations that benefit children and families. In addition, Rich Products Corporation supports People United for Sustainable Housing (PUSH), a non-profit organization dedicated to revitalizing the West Side of Buffalo, New York.
