Scottsburg Kiwanis Club board member Don Cooper presents a check for $1,000 to United Way of Scott County Executive Director Nancy Riley. The grant was awarded from the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club Fund at the Scott County Community Foundation and will be used to support the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program. This initiative provides free books for children from birth through age five, mailed every month to a child’s home. United Way and the Community Foundation brought this program to Scott County seven years ago to increase early childhood literacy. There are currently 910 children who receive books, with 1,108 who “graduated” when they turned five. It only costs $25 to sponsor a child each year.
