Real Story: From the eyes of a nine-year-old.
October 7, 2009 § Leave a comment
Alex, 9, is the youngest of five children. She says she misses her oldest brother who is in Iraq. Her dad builds houses and her mom works at H-E-B. In her spare time she says she likes to crochet, knit, and make scarves for her friends.
Alex takes the bus from Dawson Elementary to Kids Cafe at the Boys and Girls Club of South Austin five days a week. She says when she goes home after Kids Cafe, she doesn’t eat anything else.
What’s Alex’s favorite part of Kids Cafe? “Eating! And, if you don’t eat healthy, you won’t have enough energy!”
Kids Cafes are safe, nurturing places where neighborhood children can go after school and receive a hot dinner, as well as help with homework from caring individuals. Click here for more information.
