Passion 4 K.I.D.S. (Kids In Desperate Situations) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity dealing with handicapped, neglected, abandoned, abused and underprivileged children of any race, color and creed as well as children in acute, life-threatening, emergency situations in the United States.
These are the “forgotten” children whose young lives have been turned upside down that fall through the cracks with little or no insurance or government programs available to help them. Truly nothing brings greater joy than to put a smile on their faces and try to lighten their load. Passion 4 K.I.D.S. helpers wear many faces, depending on each child’s individual circumstances.
Founders, Charles and Linda Van Kessler, have a passion for kids – their kids, other people’s kids, kids that are hurting, kids that are “special” – any kid! That’s why they created Passion 4 K.I.D.S.
The mission of the organization spoke to Olivenhain Self Storage's Resident Manager, Kymberly Davis, who after difficult and unsuccessful pregnancies was able to adopt children. Kimberly herself is adopted, so she was overjoyed to see how much Passion 4 K.I.D.S. helps kids and simply lets them know they are loved. The team at OSS agreed that Passion 4 K.I.D.S. is a wonderful and deserving organization which would truly benefit from a charitable donation.
