Monday at the Tippecanoe Valley School Board meeting, Mentone Elementary School Student Council member Lily Koch presented a donation of $5,000 to Stephanie Overbey, CEO of Kosciusko County Community Foundation.
The donation was designated for the Kosciusko County Riley Kids Fund (KCRKF), a component fund of the Community Foundation.
KCRKF provides financial assistance to Kosciusko County families who have a child receiving care at Riley Children’s Hospital. The fund also provides direct support to Riley Children’s Hospital. The Student Council raised the money by hosting a coin war at the school where grade levels competed against each other for raising the most money in coins for the fund.
Since 1968, Kosciusko County Community Foundation Inc. has helped donors achieve their charitable dreams. The Community Foundation is a public charity that grants $3 million annually in the areas of education, health, arts and culture, recreation, civic projects, environment and human services.
