The Taylorville Kiwanis Club donated some 177-dollars from its weekly "Happy Bucks" promotion, to the Missions for Taylorville tornado relief program, during its Tuesday luncheon.
The "Happy Bucks" promotion is a former Post Office Box converted into a piggy-bank type container, and Kiwanis members normally donate a dollar or 5-dollars when they have something happy to share with the club.
Kiwanis president Michael Evanchak tells Regional Radio News how the donation happened.
On Wednesday, Evanchak donated a check from the club for $177, to the Missions for Taylorville tornado relief effort, on Wednesday. Accepting the check on behalf of Missions for Taylorville was its director Ed Legg.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
