A big thank you to the Kids FUNd

A big thank you to the Greater Newton Kids FUNd for supporting such a diverse group of local charities for kids!

Hillcrest and Grace Community churches have partnered together to offer biweekly Wednesday night game nights for kids at the Newton Activity Center through the winter months when the skate park and playground are too cold to serve as gathering places for kids.

The program, called “RockeTown,” offers young people snacks, games, music, a word of encouragement and positive role models at a crucial age.

The grant funds will go a long way in allowing RockeTown to purchase new games and equipment, which keep the evening fun, interactive and, ultimately, relevant to the kids who participate in the activities.

On behalf of the RockeTown kids and youth, a big thank you, Kids FUNd, and all the Kids FUNd underwriters!
