BRUNSWICK — The Brunswick Youth Development Initiative has been selected as one of 200 finalists for State Farm Neighborhood Assist. Kristen Butterfield, initiator, explains how and why the measure was launched.
The current goal of the development initiative is to gain the votes needed to receive a grant to help restore a local meeting place for community youth of all ages. explains Butterfield.
She says she is overwhelmed by the community support her organization has received and hopes the public will help her group secure a $25,000 grant to renovate the tennis courts at Herring Memorial Park. She elaborates.
With only a ten-day voting period, Butterfield and her organization need all the support they can possibly get. Anyone in the country, aged 18 and over, can vote for the initiative. Voting takes place online and can be viewed here. Butterfield describes how the voting process works.
Tax-deductible monetary donations are also accepted for the project and can be mailed directly, along with a memo to be used for the Brunswick Youth Development Initiative at the Chariton County Community Foundation:
