Scottsburg Kiwanis Club board member Don Cooper, right, presents a check for $2,000 to Pastor Steve Gwaltney, president and board chair of The Refuge. The grant was awarded from the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club Fund at the Scott County Community Foundation. Pastor Gwaltney and Cooper are standing at the future site of The Refuge, a facility that will provide a safe haven and a stable, loving environment for abused, neglected and displaced children. The goal of The Refuge is to lessen the negative impact of childhood trauma so that children have a great probability for success. They are currently holding a building campaign with the goal of breaking ground this year. For more information, visit
