Savage explained the center is funded through generous donations and various grants, as well as a sponsor-a-child program.  “A $25 per month pledge for 12 months keeps kids coming in the door,” said Savage.

He went on to describe the type of programs offered to those involved.  “It’s open to anyone whose interested in being a part of it,” said Savage,”Our target is those kids that are eligible for free and reduced lunch, but we’re not specifically making the program just for them.   It will be 5 days a week, Monday through Friday. Kids will be bussed into us and we will go through our programs and activities with them and  we will feed them a hot snack.”

Anyone interested in sponsoring an area youth’s participation with the center is encouraged to contact Savage at 660-646-1352.
