Hello, my name is Amy Holliday. I am excited to start this new adventure. I have a passion for helping people of all ages, especially children. As a mother of three I know the importance of a positive influence in a child’s live. I have been blessed with the opportunity to partner with Chicktime. As a community we can reach the children who need us most. We have found a great group of kids to serve being cared for by New Beginnings Youth Shelter. Together we can show unconditional love and make a positive influence in these children’s lives.

 

We will meet together on the 3rd Saturday of every month at New Beginnings Youth Shelter in Brooksville. During our time with the kids we will enjoy a variety of activities such as cooking classes, arts and crafts, sports, dance, etc.

I am so happy to announce that the Spring Hill Chapter received a donation! The woman that made the donation was very specific in how she wanted the donation used. Her wish was for all the kids at NBYS to receive new bedding. Her donation allowed use to deliver 18 new bed-in-a-bag sets last week.

MARCH EVENT RECAP
We are happy to announce that our first Chicktime event went great! We had such an awesome time serving the kids.
We ended up with 8 helpers and served 13 kids ranging in age from 12yrs -16yrs, 5 boys and 8 girls. Each kid made an individual lasagna and decorated cupcakes. We had a very competitive game of kickball as well. The adults are all a little sore, the kids are feeling fine I am sure! It was sweet to hear the kids requesting to make their shelter leaders lasagna and cupcakes, they did not want to leave them out. These kids are so precious and sweet. I think they impacted us more than we impacted them!!! What a blessing to be able to serve these loveable kids.kidshands
