When Second Harvest decided to end its funding to the Kids Cafe program, that could have been the end for the community outreach to the youth at Rockwood Housing Authority.
However, an anonymous donation cemented the funding for the coming year.
Now RHA employee Jennifer Watson said the donations and volunteers are in place in the community to continue the program.
“We are going to be just fine,” she said.
Watson said community members organized a drive that sparked a lot of donations.
“The support has come in. More volunteers have come in. It is going to work out,” Watson said.
She said it takes around $3,500 a year to operate the Kids Cafe. Kids Cafe is held each Wednesday at 5 p.m.
