Philanthropic Groups Make Donations


The season of giving continues.

Two philanthropic groups in Clay County are supporting their community.

100 Women Who Care Clay County and Guys Who Give made donations on Tuesday.

100 Women Who Care presented $10,600 to the Clay County Community Theatre.

The money will be used for restoration of the theatre’s interior.

That includes fresh paint, new carpet and new light fixtures.

“We have a building, a beautiful performance building but it needs maintained. It needs improvements and we just couldn’t do it without some of the organizations in our community stepping forward and helping out, and 100 Women Who Care are doing just that. This is a significant gift that will help us see our project through and do it in a quicker fashion,” says Lee Reberger, the theatre’s Vice President.

Meanwhile, Guys Who Give made a $4,000 donation to the Clay County C.A.S.A. Kids Program.

C.A.S.A. speaks for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the court system.

The money will help C.A.S.A. provide children with things like food, school supplies, clothing and temporary shelter needs.

It will also help provide new experiences that these children might not otherwise have.

“It also covers things that kids might not be able to get covered by any other community organization. Things like baseball, basketball, dance class, tumbling, cheerleading. We’ve assisted many, many kids in getting to do extra-curricular activities that they otherwise might not get to do,” says Shannon Willmore, the program’s Director.

The Clay County C.A.S.A. Kids Program is funded completely by donations, so they are very grateful for the community’s support.
