Basketball court and shade awning funded by VFW donation was dedicated in community celebration
September 29, 2022 [KINGMAN, AZ] — MIKID the Valley’s largest Family-Run Organization serving children and families with behavioral health challenges, held a community celebration to dedicate its new outdoor facilities to the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) Post 10386. This community event was held on National VFW Day, September 29th at the Kingman MIKID facility. Family fun and delicious BBQ style refreshments were provided for everyone in attendance.
In addition to recognizing National VFW Day on September 29th, MIKID hosted this event to thank VFW Post 10386 for a generous donation gifted back in November of 2020. VFW Post 10386 had given $20,000 to the organization, who used the donation to build a basketball court and large shade awning at their Kingman facility. MIKID provides mental health and support services to more than 150 children and families every month at its Kingman facility, which is one out of eight locations across the state.
“We are so grateful to the VFW,” said MIKID CEO Jeff Kazmierczak. “This outdoor recreation area is so important to the children and families that we serve. It is vital for children to be able to participate regularly in sports and to play outdoors. The sports court and shade awning will provide the ability for our kids to enjoy the outdoors with protection from the sun.”
“I absolutely love what this organization does for the children and families of our community,” said Mohave County Supervisor Jean Bishop, who attended the event. “It’s so important that we continue to support these types of services who support our youth and families.” Lance Bowen from VFW Post 10386 said, “It’s great to see the impact that our contribution has made, and we are proud to be a supporter of MIKID.”
