“Thank you so much, KHCPL. You are a true blessing!”
Helping kids get an education
Brian West of UAW Local 1166 and Cheryl Graham, United Way labor activity director, send this Cheer:
“As chairmen of the 2013 SUPPLIES program — a program coordinated by the Howard-Tipton Counties Central Labor Council with The Salvation Army, Chrysler, UAW, United Way and 20 additional community partners — we wish to express our thanks to all of the volunteers and organizations that helped us distribute school supplies to 1,049 children this year.
“Special thanks United Way and 2-1-1 United Way of Howard County for their support and assistance. The Salvation Army’s contribution of 500 backpacks and 200 from MDwise were a wonderful part of the effort. Thanks to UAW 685 for providing a home and refreshments for the program, and Chrysler for its help.
“Because of everyone’s support, we are able to help students in every school system in Howard County. Individual volunteers donated 700-plus hours of assistance during the week of distribution, and we couldn’t have done it without them. The Indiana Health Center scheduled appointments for school physicals and dental appointments, helping these children get medical services they need.
“SUPPLIES brings together numerous organizations to work toward a common goal: helping our children get a great education.
“The 2013 partners also include: UAW 685, UAW 685 Retirees, UAW 292, Howard-Tipton Counties CLC, United Way of Howard County, The Salvation Army, Plumbers and Pipefitters 440, UAW 292 Retirees, UAW 1166, UAW 1302, USW 2958, North Central Indiana Building Trades, Kokomo Teachers Association, NALC 533, OPEIU 1, IBEW 723, Chrysler, MDwise, Indiana Health Center, Bradford Health Services, Dan’s Donuts and Kokomo Fire Department.”
Business support a blessing
Bill Waggoner of Brookside Free Methodist Church sends this Cheer:
“I would like to thank the many businesses in the Kokomo area that help support non-profit organizations such as the Brookside FMC Paul Fausett Memorial Golf Scramble. Without your help, organizations such as ours would not be able to do much.
