Today the Kiwanis Family House received an $8,000 grant from the Kelly Foundation for its Sponsor a Family program. Executive Director Dan Germain was very pleased to receive these much-needed funds: “Funding our Sponsor a Family program is a top priority. Rent reductions and waivers for families in need represent more than $100,000 in lost revenue annually. Grants from organizations such as the Kelly Foundation ensure that we can continue to be there for the over 150 families every month who stay at the Kiwanis Family House while caring for their critically ill or injured family members”.
The Kelly Foundation makes grants to various charitable organizations including but not limited to educational institutions, hospitals, cultural activities, and groups for the benefit of children. This is the second award granted to the Kiwanis Family House by the Kelly Foundation in the past three years.
