Great news! Back in December we gave you an update on KIDS Place and the many services we provide for children in Macon County who have suffered abuse. At that time we also told you about the two-month challenge grant from the Robert and Polly Dunn Foundation that would match all gifts up to $20,000. And, many of you very generously responded to the challenge. Thank you.
In fact, the overall response from the community was so over-whelming that we just had to share the good news. Not only did we meet the goal of raising $20,000, but thanks to the generosity of so many people, we surpassed that goal. It’s incredible to think that during December and January, donations totaling $27,520 were made to KIDS Place to help our children.
