Kiwanis grant to UW DPIL

Scottsburg Kiwanis Club President Al Riggle presents a check for $1,000 to United Way of Scott County Executive Director Nancy Riley. The grant was awarded from the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club Fund at the Scott County Community Foundation and will be used to support the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program. This initiative provides free books for children from birth through age five, mailed every month to a child’s home. United Way and Community Foundation brought this program to Scott County six years ago to increase early childhood literacy. There are currently 922 children who receive books, with 864 who “graduated” when they turned five. It only costs $25 to sponsor a child each year. Donations to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library Fund at the Community Foundation are also being matched 50 cents for every dollar donated, through a grant opportunity from Lilly Endowment Inc. For more information, call 812-752-2057.


The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is also part of our Kiwanis Priority One Youth Programs supporting kids from birth to age five.
