Organizers of the 109th annual Sunshine Society Cheer Certificate campaign report more than $4,400 poured into their coffers in the past week, pushing them closer to their $12,000 goal.
As of Friday, $9,556.45 has been donated toward helping feed local families in need.
The Cheer Certificate program is a collaboration between the Crawfordsville High School Sunshine Society and the local chapter of Tri Kappa sorority. The groups solicit financial donations from community members and then award those funds to local families in the form of cheer certificates.
These certificates may be redeemed for grocery items at Kroger in Crawfordsville. Certificates range in value according to family size.
Anyone wishing to donate to the Cheer Certificate fund should complete a donation form, which is published regularly in the Journal Review and also can be found online at www.journalreview.com. Donations may be made in honor of or in memory of family or friends, or donations may be made anonymously. Donor names will be printed regularly in the newspaper.
Donations are accepted through mid-January and should be mailed to the Sunshine Society, P.O. Box 243, Crawfordsville, IN 47933.
All donations remain in the community.
