Area students receive iPads from Kiwanis
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Area students Quinton Carlson, Reinaldo Torna, Andrew Towne, Garrett Waddell, Ian Shaw, Heather Meinke and Bryan Waddell recently received iPads from Monroe Kiwanis.

The outreach was part of a Wisconsin-Upper Michigan Kiwanis project that gives iPads to autistic children. The technology tool allows children to show improvement after playing exercises on the iPad. The first iPad was a $250 American Family match through WIUM District; Monroe Kiwanis gave $250 for that first match. Colony Brands contributed a $1,000 match, which Monroe Kiwanis doubled with local donations, raising a total of more than $3,000 for seven iPads.

Those who would like to send a tax-deductible donation with check payable to WIUM Kiwanis District Foundation, Governor's Project on Autism, 2380 Highway 44, Suite H, Oshkosh, WI 54904. Specify donation for the Monroe Kiwanis Club.
