12/05/2015 04:37PM ● Published by Nancy Babin

The Kiwanis Club of Destin recently presented annual donations to 10 local charities including: Children in Crisis, Children’s Volunteer Health Network, Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center, Emerald Coast Science Center, Fisher House, Florida Sheriffs’ Youth Ranch, Harvest House, Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation, Okaloosa Walton Readers and Shelter House.  The funds were donated to help the charities carryout their important missions and to strengthen the community.

Ken Hair, President & CEO Children in Crisis commented, “We have been blessed with great support from the community to build the Children’s 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 Destin Kiwanis is a tremendous help in our efforts to provide a safe, loving 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!
