Children In Crisis (CIC) celebrated the grand opening of Kay’s Cupboard food pantry and donation center Jan. 16. Funding for Kay’s Cupboard was provided by Major Gen. (Ret.) Don Litke and family, in memory of his wife Kay.

“We opened the first family foster home of the CIC Neighborhood in 2008, and since then we’ve provided a home, love and care to almost 800 children while keeping all of the brother/sister sibling families together," said Ken Hair, CIC president/CEO. "That works out to more than 95,000 days and nights of a safe, loving home for an at-risk foster child. Opening Kay’s Cupboard will help us reduce cost for feeding and clothing our children, thanks to the Litke family and our very supportive community."

The CIC Children’s Neighborhood is located at 1000 Luke's Way in Fort Walton Beach. For more information, to donate, or to volunteer, please call 850-864-4242 or visit www.childrenincrisisfl.org.
