The Kiwanis Club of South Walton recently presented Children in Crisis, Inc., a donation of $1,000 to help feed, clothe, and care for the children living at the CIC Children’s Neighborhood.
Ken Hair, CIC President & CEO commented, “We have been blessed with great support from the community to build the CIC Neighborhood. However, it’s a struggle to find the necessary funding to feed and clothe the kids and sustain operations into the future. Support from the South Walton Kiwanis is a tremendous help in our efforts to provide a safe, secure home to the abused, neglected and abandoned children.”
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Their mission is serving the children of the world, which by all accounts is a very rewarding experience!
The CIC Neighborhood is a beautiful facility, built by the generous support of the community. It has an emergency shelter for children who are removed without notice from an unsafe environment and family foster homes for young children. CIC gives a home to about 100 children each year and keeps siblings together. To learn more about Children in Crisis call 850-864-4242 or visit www.childrenincrisisfl.org
