Kid’s Day is one of the valley’s largest and most visible special events to benefit Children’s Hospital Central California.  Thousands of volunteers throughout the valley help by selling a special “Kid’s Day” edition of the Fresno Bee for $1.  In 2014, approximately 1,400 Fresno State students, faculty, and staff helped to do their part by raising over $42,000!

Please join us to once again help the children and families that are served by Children’s Hospital Central California. Faculty, Students and Staff can help in three ways: (1) volunteer to sell papers, (2) help recruit other volunteers by sharing information on this event with friends, students and colleagues and (3) buy the papers from those around campus!
