We are pleased that you have chosen to join Darlene and I this evening for the Completely KIDS Big Red Tailgate. We could not be more honored to serve as the 2015 Honorary Chairmen.
For nearly 20 years, we have supported Completely KIDS in its commitment to improving the lives of children and families in the Omaha community. Through the agencys work in area schools and homeless shelters, Completely KIDS provides access to and meets the basic needs of the children and families in its programs. The agency empowers them to overcome barriers to their success by providing a safe environment, academic assistance, nutrition education and healthy food, and by connecting parent with child and families to the community.
With your support of Big Red Tailgate, Completely KIDS will be able to serve more kids and families and maintain its high-quality, rounded approach to programming. We believe in the work of Completely KIDS and are happy to help in raising money with you this evening. Thank you to each individual and corporation who contributed to the success of the 2015 Big Red Tailgate!

Completely KIDS has consistently seen the impacts of poverty in the lives of the families it works with and has developed program components that support our mission and specifically address each area of need.
Thank you for choosing to spend your evening with us. We have an enjoyable event planned that will get your sports spirit hyped up for tomorrows game and will leave you feeling great about the impact you have made on the children and families of Completely KIDS.

As an agency, we are grateful to 2015 Event Chair Kristin Lewis and her committee for the countless hours they have spent in preparing for this event. This evenings program combines old favorites with a fresh spin. As Guild members and volunteers, this committee advocates for and supports our agency by giving of their time and money year after year.

Funds received through RAISE THE PADDLE will go toward continuing the efforts of Completely KIDS including:
Feed a Child: Completely KIDS provides daily meals and weekend backpacks for children who have little or no food at home.
Tutoring Program: In the homeless shelter program, children receive individual homework help to ensure they dont fall behind due to high mobility.
Summer Gardening Programs: Children learn about the environment by growing vegetables and taking the produce home to share with their families. They also take pride in their gardens, which beautify their neighborhoods.
The Cindy Leiferman Nature Explore Classroom: This outdoor play area allows children to interact with nature, be active and enhance their fine motor, creativity, decision-making, conflict resolution and team building skills in a safe green space.
Reading Programs: A majority of the children who attend Completely KIDS are from families with low educational attainment. Reading programs provide youth with opportunities to read aloud and teach parents how to help their children.
Academic Projects: Projects engage older youth and provide a hands-on learning experience while reinforcing key academic concepts and positive life skills development. Each project includes components on science, technology, math, literature and art, role-playing, service and personal development, and may include a field trip.
Field Trips: Because many of the children have few opportunities for new and different experiences, field trips provide the chance for youth to visit educational sites and have new experiences throughout our city.
Family Nights: To make a difference in a childs life, the family must be involved. Family Nights are regularly held at each Completely KIDS program and include a meal and educational activity in which parents and children can participate together.

*We apologize for any names omitted due to printing deadlines.
Completely KIDS is a nonprofit youth-serving organization that was founded in 1920 as a local chapter of a national club program that served girls and young women. Boys were later admitted beginning in 1976.
Our agency began to reach out to the needs of underserved communities in the 1980s. This included self-reliance and enrichment activities for after-school programs in North and South Omaha.
Services to children in homeless shelters began in 1991. In 1995,
we dissolved the club program to eliminate a duplication of services.
The organization was utilizing traditional programming skills and operating after-school programs
for the underserved.
In 2011, we became an independent, unaffiliated organization and changed our name to Completely KIDS. This allows us to focus strictly on our community and have a name that reflects our local mission.
We reach youth in preschool through middle school, and their families, via school and shelter partnerships in the Omaha metro area.
