One of those is Children’s of Alabama, which was presented a check today for $1,000.

“We’re just thankful for the support for everyone that, you know, even in this last year that has been so tough for everyone that we still have support from the community around the state and beyond to just care for our patients,” said Carmen Maddox, coordinator of community development for Children’s.

“Kiwanis has been active in this community, raising money to help children. We buy books, we fund scholarships, and many other activities that are important to children,” said. John Taylor, Kiwanis Club President.
