Touch-A-Truck - September 13, 2020

Touch-A-Truck is coming!  On September 13, 2020 we will be holding our 7th annual Touch-A-Truck event. Touch-A-Truck is a fall tradition and the signature fundraiser for Coastal Kids Home Care. The event includes over 50 vehicles, food trucks, music and more. Children and adults can clamber into a fire engine, explore a bulldozer and climb behind the wheel a big rig. They can learn about CPR, build a toy vehicle, enjoy carnival games all while enjoying tasty treats.

The event has grown from a small grass roots effort to an eagerly anticipated community event attracting over 1,000 kids and kids at heart. Proceeds from Touch-A-Truck benefit Coastal Kids Home Care--our areas only provider of in-home medical, social service and therapy visits to children living with illness and injury in our community.

Cheers for Children - November 16, 2019

Football, beers, and a good cause!

Coastal Kids Home Care will be hosting it's first ever "Cheers for Children" event at Carmel Craft Brewery in Carmel.  On November 16, Notre Dame football will gear up to face Navy football.  We have reached out to local Alumni clubs in an effort to organize a watch party for local Notre Dame and Navy Alumni, but we need your help.  We are inviting all football fans out to enjoy "Cheers for Children" where a generous portion of the proceeds of food and drinks sold during the game will go back to Coastal Kids Home Care.  This money will go directly towards getting quality in-home medical care for children in our community that are battling cancer and other serious illness.
