Posted: Jul. 6, 2020 12:01 am

QUINCY -- The Quincy Noon Kiwanis distributed about $17,000 to 40 organizations that support children in Quincy and Adams County. The grants were provided last week in a ceremony.

Organizations that received grants included the Advocacy Network for Children, Camp Callahan, the Quincy Art Center, Quincy Public Schools, Quincy Notre Dame High School, Blessed Sacrament Catholic School, Transitions of Western Illinois and the Salvation Army.

Money for the grants is supported by the Noon Kiwanis annual Bids For Kids charity auction, which was 100% online this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
