Operation Kid-to-Kid is one of the world’s largest service outreach programs for children. Nondenominational Christian organizations, Group’s Vacation Bible School programs, and Group Work Camps team up to get kids involved with helping other kids. Kids have the opportunity to help other children around the world by giving gifts like school supplies, Bibles, hygiene kits, Christmas gifts, Bible coloring books, and socks and shoes. Children have also funded extensive malaria prevention and clean water initiatives in Africa and India!
Year after year, Operation Kid-to-Kid is one of the driving forces in mobilizing children to serve other kids in need. Each year millions of dollars are given by kids to help other kids in need.

2016 Operation Kid-to-Kid
Across North America, countless struggling families lack one of the most basic needs—a safe, sound place to live. These are our neighbors. People in our city, state, community—right in our backyard. This year, Operation Kid-to-Kid is partnering with Group Workcamps to provide basic home repairs for families who don’t have a safe place to play, sleep, study, live, and grow. It’s an incredible program where profound life-change happens for both the workers and the families they help. The repairs are done by teenagers who volunteer for these camps and experience the joy that comes with being the hands of Jesus for these families. The families themselves experience the dignity and hope that comes with the simple fulfillment of a safe place to live.
How it Works
Kids decorate a Change-A-Home Paper Bank they can use to collect money. They can bring their donations in and drop them into the toolbox, giving Group Cares the “tools” they need to resource teams of teenagers and other volunteers.
With the Operation Kid-toKid Poster Pack, Daniel, Ty, and Millie show your VBS participnats why Operation Kid-to-Kid exists.
The materials purchased for home repairs average about $400. If 80 participants each bring in a $5 donation, they can raise enough funds to repair a home!
2015 Operation Kid-to-Kid
Year In Review
In 2015 we partnered with Biblica and people like you with the goal of providing Thai children’s Bibles for kids in Thailand. Around the world, children’s Bibles are a rarity and a luxury. For every $4.00 donated to Group Cares, Biblica placed a specially-designed Thai children’s New Testament in the hands of a child in Thailand. What a powerful way to encourage kids—helping them grow closer to Jesus and be bold in their faith!
