Cool Gear for The School Year!

Kakes for Kids

August 31st, 2014 - On August 31st, 2014 several of His kids had the amazing opportunity to participate in the Jason Taylor Foundation Annual event "Cool Gear For The School Year" a program hosted by the Miami Dolphins legend Jason Taylor. The event took place at Old Navy in Davie, Fla. Each child was given a $300 gift card to shop the entire store, assisted by a local celebrity, with the intent to help build each child’s self-esteem and prepare them for back to school.

Our kids were invited to participate along with those of other organizations. They were welcomed into the store by the energetic Old Navy staff and were treated to a back-to-school party hosted by Old Navy, complete with delicious food from our friends from Chick-Fil-A, a live DJ, courtesy of Power Parties and celebrity MC, Ivy from Power 96. T.D., the Miami Dolphin’s mascot, also made a special appearance during this fun filled afternoon.

The evening kicked off with Jason addressing the entire group and introducing the children to their celebrity shopper. The kids were overjoyed with the opportunity to meet the Miami Dolphin’s players, Cheerleaders and other celebrities from the entertainment industry.

"Old Navy is an amazing partner, our donors are incredibly gracious and we had outstanding support from some of South Florida's biggest names…” expressed Jason Taylor. “Most importantly, 60 kids received new clothes that we hope will help them continue to build their self-esteem and improve their performance in school. They certainly looked great in their new gear and their smiles made it all worthwhile."

We are so grateful for Jason and the team at the foundation for making this back to school experience unforgettable for His kids. Thank you Jason!
