This month was our first annual Chicktime Carnival. Complete with popcorn, games and prizes. The kids had fun playing and winning. We also made a thank you poster for all the wonderful staff Saint John’s Program for Real Change
We had a blast and got a good workout in today dancing with the kids Saint John’s Program for Real Change
Pirate Black Lace did a fabulous job teaching us about Pirate Drummond and our Back to School drive was a huge success.
The kids at Saint John’s Program for Real Change got so much booty!
Happy Days for Chicktime Sacramento as we are finally back in person with our lovely charity partner
for your generosity with our drop off workshop today.
We dropped off 20 Draw with Me bags to
for the gift bags we appreciate you so much! Thanks to all our helpers the kids will have cookies to decorate, hot cocoa to drink and a gift.
Chicktime workshops look different, but our connection is the same. We are so blessed to have a relationship with
Chicktime Sacramento will not be meeting in the month of May. As much as we miss our workshops and time with our Chicktime kids we want to keep everyone safe! We hope to resume things soon.
In the meantime, if you have an idea to show some love from a distance reach out to us and we can see if it’s possible. Perhaps send cards or provide crafts? If you are willing to provide it we are willing to ask our charity partner if it can happen.
Sending our love,
Chicktime Sacramento Leadership Team
Like many other Chicktime charity partners across the nation, our charity partner has been severely impacted financially by the Covid 19 crisis. Our team made a choice to do what we could remotely and participated in The Save The Red Door Fundraiser. In doing so we were able to raise $400 for our charity partner. In addition to this we are still actively building an Amazon wish list of activities for the program to alleviate the boredom we are sure is setting in. I want to thank Chicktime Sacramento for stepping up in this time of crisis. I’m humbled by your dedication to Chicktime Sacramento and our charity partner.
Saint John’s For Real Change reached out to thank us for all of our support! They were so touched by our generosity and immediate response to their plea for help.
I miss you ladies and can’t wait till we can be together again!
Stay healthy and safe!
A Message from Saint John’s Program for Real Change….
– We Need You Now More Than Ever –With the ongoing threat of COVID-19, Saint John’s has made the EXTREMELY difficult decision to postpone many of our CRUCIAL fundraising events – including at least two Guest Chef Dinners and likely more as new information and directives unfold.In addition, the entire organization will be deeply impacted by the suspension of operations at our revenue-generating social enterprises and the closing of our campus to visitors, including volunteers who regularly provide, prepare and serve many of our weekly meals to our women and children. With all women and children on campus fulltime, our food expense will see a drastic increase.
Financially, this puts Saint John’s in serious jeopardy.HOW YOU CAN HELP:1. Make a Financial DonationNow, more than ever, we are in need of support from our community partners to help us through this unexpected crisis. Your monetary gift will allow us to continue to provide critical services for formerly homeless women and children.

Set a goal, enlist your family and friends, and watch your fundraising thermometer rise! This is a fun effort that will have a huge impact!3. Support our Immediate NeedsIf you’d like to donate items, the best and safest way to do so would be to visit our Amazon Wish List available on our website.When times get tough, together — as a community — we will always find a way to continue to create real change.Together, we will get through this, too.
We are so privileged to work with these kids at Saint John’s Program for Real Change!
They are so sweet, kind and creative.
Today we made Valentine’s Day Cards!
I also asked a few of the kids to make thank you cards for the Girl Scout group who donated our Christmas Stockings
and man these kids made the best cards.
See you in March!
Chicktime Sacramento wants to leave a legacy… A legacy of love and hope given to the least of these!
This month we wanted to pamper the mom’s with tea, muffins, and gifts.
We are so grateful to all our volunteers and those who donated to our workshop.
Especially….. The Peaceful Bee Co. for their generosity! Each mom got a product from them as well as other goodies for self care.
Please join us next month!
Our April workshop at our new charity partner went great. We have a better understanding of the facility and the people we will serve. We can’t wait to make this our home away from home.
Earth day activity and a little bit of playtime! Come grow our chapter with us and let’s make a difference together!
Due to new rules and regulations at our current charity partner, we were not able to have a workshop in January. They have suspended groups from volunteering until they figure out how to handle things best. At present, our Chicktime Chapter is looking for a new Charity Partner to serve. Please stay tuned.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Chicktime this month! We had so much playing with clay and making fun art with the kiddos!
Chicktime Sacramento would like to put out a very special THANK YOU to our Founder, Jeanette George, who will be moving this month. Jeanette, you have built a legacy in Sacramento that will last forever. The work you have done to bring love and friendship to the children who call the Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento their home. You have rallied the women of our community to stand behind not just the mission of Chicktime, but also behind YOU. Thank you for founding our chapter, showing us how powerful kind words and hugs are, and for simply being you! We can’t wait to watch where your journey will take you next!
Devoted Chicktime Sacramento Volunteers showed up to love and encourage the kids at the Children’s Receiving Home today!
A special thanks to Beatriz Schaller, Beatrice Galfre DDS, the best dentist ever, for her donation of toothbrushes, toothpaste.and dental floss for all the kids. They loved them.
Noting is more rewarding than working with these kids.
Join us next month!
Chicktime Sacramento was busy this weekend. We held our monthly workshop with the Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento. Amy and her daughter, Taylor, hand painted canvas for each of the kids to use as vision boards. They also decorated cupcakes and had pizza for snack! It was a huge success! We also ran a craft table at a community BBQ and Easter Egg Hunt. We had collage materials, leis, and lollipops! Thank you to all the volunteers that came out to both events.
Can’t wait to see you next month!!
Our February workshop theme was….Everyone is beautiful and uniquely made!! To demonstrate this we made Inside/Out Bottles!
We are all made up of different layers. It is our own individual layers that make us who we are! Sometimes in
life certain things, events or even people create waves and this colors our life in different ways.
No two people have the same layers, waves, or colors.
It is up to us to decide how we are going to let these waves “layer” our lives.
Join us next month!
Oh what fun Chicktime Sacramento had today at the Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento. It was such a great Christmas Party and we were blessed with so many wonderful donations.
We were able to give the kids a Hot Chocolate Bar, Cookie Decorating Table, Crafts, Fun Snacks, and even some really cool gifts.
Thanks again to all who came out and donated time, gifts, snacks, and your love and support.
We are so exited to see what the New Year will bring!
What do you see when you look at this picture?
We see incredible women who gave up a Saturday morning to encourage children living at
Children’s Receiving Home!
We were all blessed to get to have some “pumpkin” fun with the kids and we look forward to next month’s workshop!
We are a new Chicktime Chapter eager to serve these children one monthly workshop at a time!
Please join us! We sure could use your help!
Thank you to everyone who attended the launch of Chicktime Sacramento last weekend! We are so excited about our chapter and our relationship with Children’s Receiving Home!! We played a cooperation game and made sensory bottles. Snack was the biggest hit with the kids. Thank you so much to the ladies who made it and to the staff for all your support. We can’t wait to see you all again in October for some Halloween fun!!
