As kids get excited about the holidays, thousands of young people in this country will be facing difficult situations. Theirs won’t be a happy or exciting summertime. Every five minutes a child runs away from home or care – children like Megan, who has been on the run since the age of ten. 

By holding a Summer Celebration picnic, you can have loads of fun with your kids while raising money to help those without a safe and loving home. We have loads of free, fun games and activities to keep everyone entertained at your Summer Celebration picnic. There are also lots of resources to help make your picnic the best event of the summer!
