Huck Finn’s Playland wants to inspire your family to make a difference in your community. Huck’s Helping Hands is a kindness movement intended to encourage children to do good deeds. Help your child come up with an act of kindness that they are passionate about! Maybe it’s helping your elderly neighbor with yardwork, picking up garbage at your favorite park, or collecting bottles and cans to raise money for a local food pantry, tell us about your child’s act of kindness and they can become one of Huck’s Helping Hands!
Entries will be featured right here on our web site and each week one child will be chosen to be featured as Huck’s Helping Hand of the Week on WNYT Channel 13! Your child will also receive a Huck’s Helping Hands wristband and be eligible for more fun giveaways and an end of the season celebration at the Playland!
