Elks grant helps Kids America purchase chairs

| September 27, 2019

COSHOCTON – Kids America was the recipient of grant money from the Coshocton Elks Lodge that allowed them to purchase nine new office chairs. “Kids America has been around for 18 years now and a lot of our equipment from over the years we’ve made last,” said Isaac Bush, executive director at Kids America. “This is the first time we have ever bought office chairs that I’m aware of. This is for the betterment of our staff so we can better serve our community. Everything we do here is either directly or indirectly for bettering our kids.” Jim Baylor from the Coshocton Elks Lodge said the money they donated came from Ohio Elks Association Community Service Grant. Four grants are earmarked for each district and they must be used to purchase equipment for a municipality or a police, fire, or park department which they would not otherwise be able to purchase, which will allow them to do their jobs better. The maximum amount for each grant is $750. Pictured from left are Bush and Baylor with two of the new chairs at Kids America.
