Kids with special healthcare needs get together in Yakima


The One2One Program, a Children’s Village program for children with special healthcare needs who are paired with specially-trained teen mentors, is hosting ‘Kid’s Club’ in the month of July.

The weekly gathering is an opportunity for the kids and mentors to get together for a couple of hours and do something fun and new. Activities range from touring a local business or organization to ice cream social’s at Children’s Village.

Kid’s Club kicked off with a tour of Mobile Fleet, a local heavy duty truck dealership, who also offers parts, sales, service, and a body shop. They also specialize in trailer repair, fabrication, and lift gate repair, sales, and installation.

The afternoon finished with a special tour of the Coke trucks and some nice cold drinks! The kids loved seeing the semi-trucks being repaired, touring the supply warehouse and watching the many employees at work. A fun interactive Bingo game helped the kids work together to identify objects they saw throughout the tour.

“We love having the opportunity to partner with local community members to give our kids special opportunities they might not have otherwise and everyone always tells us how special it is to have our awesome kids and families join them for a day,” Kristi Messer the Parent to Parent youth Volunteer Coordinator said.
