CRESTVIEW — Children in Crisis has extra support for its programs benefiting at-risk children.
InDyne Corporation, located on Eglin Air Force Base, donated food and toys to the nonprofit organization. InDyne employee Marlena Lacy coordinated the drive.
"The donation was truly a blessing and came at a perfect time," Ken Hair, CIC president and CEO, said.
"We provide a home to about 100 children every year, and our toughest challenge is to find the support to sustain operations.
"This donation will be an enormous help!"
The CIC Neighborhood in Fort Walton Beach provides emergency shelter for children removed from an unsafe environment on short notice, and offers housing to help with foster home shortage.
