The Kiwanis Club of Destin recently presented Children in Crisis Inc. a donation of $1,400 to help feed, clothe, and care for the children living at the CIC Children’s Neighborhood.

“We have been blessed with great support from the community to build the Children’s Neighborhood,” said Ken Hair, CIC president/CEO. “However, it’s difficult to find critical funding to feed and clothe the kids and sustain operations. Support from the Destin Kiwanis is a tremendous help in our efforts to provide a safe, loving home to the abused, neglected and abandoned children.”

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Their mission is serving the children of the world.

The CIC Neighborhood facility was built by the generous support of the community. It has an emergency shelter for children who are removed without notice from an unsafe environment and family foster homes for young children. CIC gives a home to about 100 children each year and keeps sibling families together. To learn more about Children in Crisis call 850-864-4242 or visit .
