The Kimberly Fund

Postby Leighann » Sat Feb 24, 2018 10:01 pm

Hey everybody just wanted to remind you of The Colon Club's Kimberly Fund. If you have a child under age 18 apply for The Kimberly Fund grant. We review applications once a quarter and award 2 grants each time. The money can be used for anything fun to help your child forget about cancer for a moment and be a kid.
