The Kiwanis Club of Port Clinton was pleased to receive a grant of $1,500 from the Kiwanis International Children’s Fund COVID-19 Response Program. The grant was presented to the Ottawa County Family Advocacy Center (OCFAC) to assist with food bags to be distributed to school children during extended weekends and breaks from school.
“This year has seen unprecedented need for assistance in providing food for kids,” said Connie Cornett, Executive Director of the OCFAC. “These funds will be used in all of our school districts to provide food for kids during long weekends and holidays from school. Many of our kids depend upon the schools for food and extended weekends and holidays challenge their ability to eat.”
“Kids need Kiwanis, both here in Port Clinton and around the world,” said Mike Zipfel, president of the Kiwanis Club of Port Clinton.
Kiwanis Club of Port Clinton is also proud to be the sponsor of Key Clubs at Port Clinton High School and Danbury High School, as well as Builders Club at Port Clinton Middle School. The club provides scholarships to graduating area seniors and is active in supporting programs for area youth.
New Kiwanis members are always welcome.
