Kids Wish brought supplies to children

With help from city and county officials as well as sponsors from all over the country, Kids Wish Network On Tour brought new toys, clothes, educational products, baby items and other necessities to the children of Brownfield and surrounding cities. Kids Wish Network On Tour was a tremendous success for everyone involved, especially for over 2,400 children in attendance who have dealt with harsh adversities such as poverty, neglect, homelessness, abuse or illnesses.

Children of all ages lit up as their local police officers, firefighters and city officials handed them bags overflowing with all sorts of toys, games and other necessities during the Kids Wish Network On Tour event over the weekend.

Hosted by Mayor Bob Simpson and the City of Brownfield, Kids Wish Network On Tour was created by international children’s charity Kids Wish Network to bring “miles of smiles” to at-risk children by sending donations of toys and necessities into the hearts of their hometowns.

Through the assistance of Megatrux, Inc., a semi-truck loaded with these necessities drove to Oak Grove Elementary School, where it was unloaded and set up for the big event by local volunteers from Brownfield.
