Red Wagon: A Community Partnership

Working Together to Deliver on the Five Promises

Our Share Commitment to Children and Their Future Success

Red Wagon is a community partnership of individuals and organizations who agree that every child deserves what we call "The Five Promises":


  1. Caring adults

  2. Safe places

  3. A healthy start

  4. A good education

  5. Opportunities to help others

Working together, our community organizations and neighborhoods are meeting the needs of our children. Red Wagon is also a symbol of our common commitment that our children obtain resources necessary for safe, healthy, successful growth and development. Red Wagon brings joy to children and focus to the adults of our community. 

Look for the Red Wagon at many community events throughout the year. You can invite the Red Wagon to your neighborhood events. The Red Wagon will help you survey your neighborhood to find out the real needs of the children there, and will connect you to community organizations that can help you meet those real needs.

You can use the Red Wagon to collect supplies in your community or you may deliver supplies to needy kids and their families.

The Red Wagon belongs to you, the community, and is a strong symbol of community partnership. So, wherever Red Wagon shows up, ALL of us will be helping each other meet the real needs of our children! To learn more about Red Wagon, please call (269) 969-9181.
