“Now that we have seven foster homes open to give a home to at-risk children, on any given day we have over 50 kids living at the Neighborhood. Support from the Kiwanis is a great example of their passion for children.”
The Membership of the Kiwanis Club of Niceville-Valparaiso answered the call to help replenish the food pantry at Children In Crisis. The club recently presented a check for $3,000 to Ken Hair, CIC President and CEO, to help bridge the shortage in the CIC food pantries caused by the children’s school summer vacation.
“The Niceville-Valparaiso Kiwanis Club has a wonderful membership that’s always ready and willing to help support our children living at the CIC Neighborhood,” said Hair.
