JOHNS CREEK, Ga. Dolvin Elementary School offers an after school club for fourth- and fifth-graders called Kids Care that teaches the students how important it is to give back to their community.

The students focus mostly on giving back to other children, but the program also includes events that serve or show appreciation for other groups such as soldiers, the elderly and police.

The students are involved in the entire process of an event. They start by brainstorming ideas on whom to help: kids with cancer, troops abroad, the elderly, animals or underprivileged children, for example.

Then they look at how to help through fundraising, raising awareness of the issue and collection drives for needed items.

They even discuss how they will market their event with posters, flyers and the school newsletter.

At a recent meeting, Kids Care students made 48 blankets for Project Linus, an organization that distributes the blankets to children who are sick or sad. They donate the blankets to shelters in the area, mainly SafePath and foster care facilities were the children wait until they are placed in a foster home.

Kids Care's donation was the largest single donation that has ever been received by the Forsyth chapter of Project Linus.
