Founded in 2009, the TLC for Kids Sports program is focused on improving our local communities and youth sports. TLC for Kids Sports partners with agencies and sports organizations who share our passion of ongoing community outreach to find underserved neighborhoods that need some TLC for their youth sports facility. Leading up to the transformation, we reach out to public officials, local businesses and neighborhood volunteers to ignite full community participation.
Our vision is for every child involved in youth sports to play on a safe field that is also accessible for the physically challenged.
Our mission is to seek out neighborhoods where fields and parks need some strong attention and rebuild as many of them as we can.
Take a look at our completed projects.
“On behalf of the people of California’s tenth congressional district, I am proud to commend the presence and philanthropy of O.C. Jones & Sons and its CEO, Kelly Kolander, who, even in tough economic times, continue to support communities in need. Their non-profit community-based organization, TLC for Kids Sports, mobilizes O.C. Jones & Sons’ contracting and financial expertise to help build and restore safe, accessible sports fields for the youth in our communities. The fields built and restored by TLC for Kids Sports are places where our youth learn sportsmanship, hard work, and confidence, empowering them with the life skills to help build their futures. I am confident the efforts and assistance of O.C. Jones & Sons and TLC for Kids Sports, will continue to improve our communities, and the future for our youth.” - Congressman John Garamendi, California 10th District
