Members of the Kiwanis Family in Scott County participated in the Scott County United Way Day of Caring by volunteering at CRADLE for our service project and at the Turning Point Church to help the United Way with breakfast for the volunteers. Georgianna Elliott from corporate member Stock Yard Bank and Jesse Mays volunteered to help at the breakfast.
Kiwanis members Al Riggle, Monte Roth, Brent Inman, John Mastin, Guy Townsend and Wes Clark helped out at CRADLE. Monte Roth and Brent Inman ran electricity from the CRADLE Building to their storage building and installed a light. Brent patched the chimney where some blocks had crumbled and fallen. Guy Townsend repaired a shelf and tacked down a loose shingle on the roof and then helped John Mastin repair the CRADLE vacuum cleaner. Wes Clark worked on modifying donated baby beds so they meet current safety requirements. Scottsburg High School Key Club members Jonie Crawford, Josie Crawford and Jessica Backus helped sort and match donated baby clothes for loan to Moms in the county for their children.
CRADLE is the only crisis pregnancy center serving Scott County and depends on volunteers for donations to continue operation. They support Moms and babies with formula, diapers, ultrasound screening, maternity clothes, baby clothes, car seats, baby beds and other items to help those who need assistance with their babies.
