The Helping a Needy Kid Society is a 501c3 nonprofit charity which provides financial assistance to underprivileged and at-risk youth in grades Kindergarten through 12th to explore extracurricular activities in the areas of Sports, Art, Music and Education.
We serve Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware with an emphasis on Montgomery and Bucks Counties. Exploring activities outside of school allows children the opportunity to build self-esteem and a positive self-image. Enabling children to do extracurricular activities keeps them busy during after school hours and helps direct their attention to positive areas of their life as well as giving them an outlet for stress. Extracurricular activities also helps them to develop sports and other skills that could lead to scholarships and other future opportunities.
