She says the grant will help the non-profit in so many ways, including continued professional development of their staff, enhancement of their outdoor play area and hardship scholarship opportunities for families struggling financially.

A total of $29,500 was granted to local charities through the 12 Days of Giving initiative

Clayton Boyles, Executive Director of the Community Foundation says 12 Days of Giving is made possible by countless donors in the community who have chosen to give an unrestricted gift to The Fund for Dubois County.

Boyles says the initiative gets grants back into the county. He says seeing these top three organizations who are all serving the children in the community makes it extra special.
