La Grange Kiwanis Club
Longtime supporters of the WHAS Crusade for Children, the La Grange Kiwanis Club, bring out the “Big Blue Fish Bus” every Friday at the corner of First and Jefferson Streets in La Grange. It’s your spot for lunch and dinner — open 11am to 8pm — and it’s all for the kids.
Assumption High School
Assumption High School hosted a multi-school softball tourney to raise money for children with special needs. They set a goal of $1500 and topped it!
It’s an education in reading and generosity. Children from all grades at Kids Connection in Sellersburg, Indiana decided to give back and they chose children with special needs as their beneficiary.
