Kiwanis board member Jerry Ball presented a check for $750 from the Friday Harbor Kiwanis Club to Friday Harbor Elementary School for support of their after-school reading program.

“The money that was generously donated by the Kiwanis Club has allowed us to purchase snacks for the kids, which is so important after a long day at school! They are feeling energized and excited to come in! It has also given us the opportunity to add another paraeducator, which means we were able to increase our number of students. These kids really benefit from having a small group setting, and we have been able to really connect with them while offering additional support. We are very fortunate and thankful to have this support for our children,” stated Tiffany Christensen.
