02/24/11 The Plymouth Kiwanis group has answered the call for help from Heminger House Shelter for Women and Children. The civic group has donated $255.00 as well as a wide variety of personal care items and food to Heminger House which serves battered and abused women and their children in Marshall County.
Kiwanis President Dale Cramer asked all members to step up to help the center and members responded. The money came from a collection made during their regular Tuesday meeting as well as funds raised from fundraisers held throughout the year. Members were also asked to bring in non-perishable food items and personal care products.
The donations came about after a recent article on how Heminger House was filled to capacity and in desperate need of donations. The center, which opened in September of 2008, has been at capacity only twice before.
