Tacoma Kidz is a non-profit organization that supports underprivileged youth through positive mentorship, academic guidance, elite sports-specific fitness training, college and business exposure, as well as long-lasting transferable life skills and relationships.
Tacoma Kidz gives back to the Tacoma community in various ways, including but not limited to donating time and materials. The team hosts an annual turkey giveaway each November, a coat drive in the Winter, Christmas shopping for struggling families, backpack giveaways and so much more.
Through Tacoma Kidz' dedication and service, over 1,500 youth and families have received support, guidance and opportunities.
Tacoma Kidz was established in 2018 by cousins Desmond Trufant and Louis Davis Jr. Birthed from their love for the Tacoma community and a legacy of service, the cousins founded Tacoma Kidz because they believe that giving back is a way of life. With the hope to create a long-lasting impact, Tacoma Kidz now stands as a pillar in Tacoma and continues expanding into other areas in the state of Washington that need a support system that upholds underserved youth and families.
