After a most impactful year in 2017, the Jennings County Youth Foundation is already making its mark in 2018.

JCYF distributed nearly $5,000 to youth-serving organizations earlier this year via grants. The eight-year-old nonproft is not done yet as it gears up for its annual Summer Kids Camp in July and other events later in the year - including the Affordable Christmas Store in December.

"The Youth Foundation had an amazing 2017," said Kelly Hatton, one of the founding board members of JCYF, which was formed in 2010. "Thanks to over 100 volunteers, JCYF served over 500 youth and raised over $76,000 last year. To show its continued support of youth in the community, the Youth Foundation gave away $4,695 to youth-serving organizations in the past 12 months."

Last June, JCYF gave $1,694.50 to the Jennings County Parks and Recreation Department for the toddler playground fund at the Muscatatuck Park.

We've read about how over the last 15 years, the Campbell Township Volunteer Fire Department has been working toward the goal of building a new fire department. Then, in October 2017 the department received the amazing news that they were awarded a $500,000 state grant for a new firehouse. That money, with $100,000 the department has managed to save, contributions from the county, and $20,000 from the Campbell Township trustee would be used to build a new 7776-square foot facility off U.S. 50 across from Brush Creek Elementary School.
