Hastings Kiwanis Club receives $6,350 for playground project

Hastings Kiwanis Club members received a generous $6,350 gift from the Women’s Giving Circle of Barry County for their continued work on the playground at Southeastern Elementary School.

 

According to presenter Carla Wilson-Neil, the Women’s Giving Circle of Barry County has raised about a quarter of a million dollars for non-profits in Barry County since the women’s group was formed and a few women decided that a difference could be made by each woman giving a quarter donation. Now, during their quarterly meetings, the group decides whom to donate to for that period.

 

Well over 100 Barry County women now make donations each quarter to the chosen not-for-profit. Kiwanis was selected at the November meeting.

 

Many of the Kiwanis women who are also part of the Women’s Giving Circle of Barry County, and Kiwanis members whose wives are likewise a member of the Giving Circle, gathered with Carla Wilson-Neil to accept the gift which will now allow Kiwanis to continue to work with Southeastern Elementary School on the next phase of the playground renovation.
