She also serves on a number of agencies as an officer on Friends of CASA Board of Directors, Kids with Confidence Advisory Board, subcommittees related to children’s issues, and is an active public speaker on child advocacy.

Kind to Kids Foundation began as a Jones family venture in 2008, and the entire family is active in the organization. Caroline’s husband, Mark, is an advisor and active board member. Her children Chris (20) and Catherine (18) are the cofounders of the organization. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or (302) 654-5440.
Chris and Catherine are the cofounders and creative spark for Kind to Kids. While at a Delaware sports event, they saw large groups of empty seats around the stadium.
They realized the seats were a wasted opportunity and asked, “Why can’t they be given to foster kids and children in poverty?” It was a pivotal question – and the start of Kind to Kids.
Thanks to Chris and Catherine, Kind to Kids has provided wonderful events to over 5,000 children and donated over $75,000 in ticket values to foster children, foster families, and children in poverty since our inception in 2008. Chris is a senior at Villanova University and Catherine is a sophmore at St. Joseph’s University. In addition to their studies, Chris and Catherine are active participants in the organization and serve in a number of ways – from distributing tickets and volunteering at events to creating marketing plans and office management.
Kind to Kids is fortunate to have committed staff members who are passionate about our mission and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. They enable our organization to provide compassionate, effective and responsible services. Call us at (302) 654-5440.
