The UNCG Office of Housing and Residence Life announces the third annual “Kidfest: For Kids of All Ages.”

Kidfest is a fundraiser with the goal of purchasing summer reading books for students at Triangle Lake Montessori School in High Point. The books will be leveled readers, as they are called in the education field, and are important resources for students to continue their literacy development during the summer months. The project aims to provide each child at the school with a book to take home and keep, no strings attached. Funds are raised through grants from various organizations on campus including the UNCG Residence Hall Association and through individual fundraising teams of UNCG students. UNCG students are invited to form teams and raise money using various strategies ranging from bake sales to social events. All fundraising teams will receive Kidfest T-shirts in appreciation of their efforts. The fundraising culminates in a festival for both UNCG and Triangle Lake students from 4-6 p.m. on Friday, March 27, 2015. The location is the UNCG Quad Lawn. The event will including dancing, hula-hooping, Zumba, arts and crafts, tag, dodge ball, parachute games, sidewalk chalk and more. Any and all contributions will be graciously accepted.. Any questions can be directed to Megan Delph, mcdelph@uncg.edu.
