Children all around the area will soon receive the help they need, courtesy of Quincy Noon Kiwanis.
The group donated $18,000 to 40 local organizations that serve children. The grants will be used for anything from art programs to food drives. Quincy Noon Kiwanis met for lunch Monday to award all of the organizations their grants.
"I think receiving these grant funds for these organizations is a very big deal," Quincy Noon Kiwanis Member Kristen Ritterbusch said. "We have so many wonderful organizations in our area that are doing so much for our youth and their families, and this is just one way that we can help them help more kids."
In order to receive a grant, organizations had to apply and be in Adams County.
