Kiwanians help Joey’s Toy Box

The Newnan Times-Herald

Each year, Kiwanis clubs around the world join in a day of service.

Kiwanis One Day is an opportunity to bring together the Kiwanis family of clubs to focus on local community service. For the Kiwanis Club of Coweta County, that day was Oct. 26.  

Kim Doolittle was invited to share her son Joey's dream to help other children with cancer.  Doolittle's son Joey, passed away in 2008 after a lifetime battle against cancer.

Joey's Toy Box, a local 501(c) organization, is dedicated to providing toys and other care items to childhood cancer patients undergoing treatment. KCCC members brought books, toys, arts and crafts supplies and monetary gifts to donate to JTB.
