The project aimed to help less privileged students as they start with the new school year. The school kits include writing papers, pencils, crayons, sharpeners, scissors and rulers. Raincoats were given to the little boys while umbrellas were given to the girls to protect them from rain when they go to school. Hygienic kits were also given which include small towels, toothpastes and toothbrushes.

Aside from the distribution of such kits, KIDS Club also spent an afternoon with the children playing games and sharing food. Members of the Crossnote Choir from Sta. Cecilia Parish were also there to share their music. Although it suddenly rained and the venue became flooded, it did stop the kids from having fun and enjoying the donuts given by Krispy Kreme. We were also fortunate that a team from TV5 was present to capture the said event.
