A Mercer County advocacy center gets much needed help
Child Protect of Mercer County received a $7,2000 donation. The money was raised through last month's Youth Day at the Range at the Dan Hale Reservoir. Center Director Shiloh Woodward says the donation really helps them since they were hit with cutbacks in state and federal funding.
"Being able to raise money locally, or have folks locally who see the need for our services and are willing to contribute through whatever means possible, really goes along way, especially with state and federal budget cuts affecting programs like ours," she says.
This was the third year the Day at the Range was held at the reservoir.
