Donations still accepted as Cheer campaign winds down


As the 110th annual Sunshine Society Cheer Certificate campaign begins to wind down, organizers report they have surpassed their $15,000 goal, but donations are still being accepted.

As of Jan. 7, donation totals reached $15,219.07.

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 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 should be mailed to the Sunshine Society, P.O. Box 243, Crawfordsville, IN 47933. Be sure to write “CHS” in the “Pay to the Order Of” line on the check.

All donations remain in the community. Donations are accepted through mid-January and the final day to redeem the certificates is Jan. 31.

Recent donations to the Sunshine Society include: $100 anonymous; $25 anonymous in memory of Terry Krout, Bonnie Bond and James Van Dorn; $20 anonymous in memory of Clark and Marnell Hershberger; $100 anonymous; $50 anonymous; and $50 from Sheila Evans in memory of Bob Evans.
