The Taylorville Kiwanis Club again this year funded their annual "Coats for Kids" program, to provide coats to Taylorville Head Start children.
Recently, teachers of the Head Start program selected the coats at the Wal-Mart Super Center in Taylorville, and presented them to the children. Those involved in implementing the program this year included Jessica Parrish (right), the Taylorville II Head Start teacher; and Shannon Martin (left) who is theTaylorville I Head Start teacher.
Funds that the Taylorville Kiwanis Club raise locally each year, go into the Club's Foundation account, which in turn provides monies for programs like the Head Start "Coats for Kids" program, as well as maintaining Kiwanis Park, providing scholarships for high school students and the Christian County YMCA, and supporting the Christian County C-E-O program, and many others.
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 their new meeting location, the Taylorville Moose Lodge. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
