Kids Of Steele

Kids of Steele was formed to create a community of support for the UA Steele Children’s Research Center, and to give kids an opportunity to make a difference and feel the true rewards that service can bring.

Any child is welcome to join. We are asking for a $250 tax-deductible yearly donation. However, beyond that, we want Kids of Steele to work for you and your family. You can download the Membership Form here.

Kids can participate in a variety of ways (see “Ways You Can Help” in margin to the right). We don’t want this to be yet another activity to busy your lives. Instead, we hope you will see this as a chance for your kids to give back in big or small ways and truly make it their own.

Some of our families are participating in our canister campaign, which we will officially kick off at our family Fall event. Through our canister campaign, we hope to raise extra funds through people’s spare change and spread the word about all that the Steele Center does for our community. Your family may choose to have a DVD drive in your child’s classroom for a week or collect items instead of birthday gifts and donate them to kids who are being treated by Steele Center physicians. Don’t worry! You won’t have to come up with these ideas on your own. Kids of Steele will keep its members involved and up-to-date on the needs of the Steele Center and what other members are doing, via email blasts and electronic newsletters.

We hope you will join the fun and take advantage of all that Kids of Steele has to offer while celebrating one of life’s greatest gifts—the health of our children! Feel free to contact me at if you would like to learn more.

Our Kick-off Event on May 16, 2010, Was a Wonderful Success!
