The Woodville-Tompkins High School Hall of Fame Association presented a $1000 check to the American Diabetes Association on Wednesday, December 19 at 11:00 a.m. at the Association offices on Paulsen Street.
Funds for a variety of local charities were raised through the recent Hall of Fame Induction Banquet. The organization inducted seven athletes and a coach.
The other organizations benefiting from the banquet are May Street YMCA ($1000) and Woodville-Tompkins High School ($2000).
According to event organizer Enoch Mathis, “We want to give back to this community and we feel that ADA, May Street Y and Woodville-Tompkins High School all do a great job serving the people of this city.”
ADA Leadership Council Chairperson, Paula Kreissler, with Wound Care Clinic ESU, was on hand to accept the check. Presented by Woodville-Tompkins officials, the $1000 donation will be used to fund the mission of American Diabetes Association, to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
