Generosity abounds. This year’s Neighbors Care Fund campaign was among its most successful. Recently, checks were presented to the beneficiary agencies, each for $9,000. They are Chelan Douglas CASA, advocates for abused and neglected children caught in the legal system; the Packing Friendship Project, 11 churches in Wenatchee and East Wenatchee that join to provide food for children in need; and New Life Adoptions, a no-fee agency led by Mike Magnotti that recruits and trains adoptive families, primarily to adopt children from the foster care system.
To those who contributed, thank you. Every dollar will be put to good use. Thanks also to the Community Foundation for facilitating the effort. Next fall, it will be renewed.
