When KYE-YAC received a call from Janice McCutcheon, director of the Child Advocacy Center, asking the all-youth board to raise money to provide some children in crisis with clothing and supplies for the new school year – the KYE-YAC kids rallied.? After making a few telephone calls and visits to other foundations, the KYE-YAC kids were ready to gather the funds they raised and go shopping!? Peyton and Kye took a list of clothing sizes and needs and spent an afternoon purchasing what they hoped would be just right for each child.
“Since our inception,” said Kye Masino, “we have supported the Child Advocacy Center and the crucial work they do for the youth in our area and state.? We are extremely fortunate to have such a dedicated center to child abuse right here in Hot Springs.”
The Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center was the first hospital-based facilty for child abuse and neglect in Arkansas. Last year alone, there were nearly 8,000 true findings of abuse in our state.? The Center provides comprehensive and compassionate care to victims of child abuse.
