Krewe of Kolosse donates thousands of dollars to Boys and Girls Club of the Wiregrass
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - A large check made its way to the boys and girls club of the wiregrass today, over three-thousand dollars.
The donation was made by the Krewe of Kolosse. The organization raised $3,100 through their croquet tournament the weekend before last and donated all of the proceeds to the Boys and Girls Club of the Wiregrass.
Executive director of the Boys and Girls club of the Wiregrass, Phillip Gilley, said donations like this are invaluable, especially during COVID-19.
“The organization is nonprofit," Gilley said. "So we rely on donations and fundraisers and grants and things like that. So when we have clubs and individuals who donate to organizations like ours it really means the world and it helps us to help our kids.”
The Boys and Girls Club is forced to cancel one of their biggest fundraisers of the year due to covid, Gilley said donations like this are able to help fill the empty gap.
