Generic give donations

Good job, Iredell County.

The Lonely Children’s Fund surpassed its goal of $30,000 for this holiday season.

Residents across the county contributed early and often to help the 173 foster children within the county in a program that runs year-round.



One can still make donations. These go toward helping each of these children have a life that most take for granted. Prom dresses. School pictures. Field trips. It’s about a lot more than just the holidays.

For 2019, the group ended the year with $33,929 raised.

And some have already begun helping toward the 2020 goal with donations in early January.

Those will continue to be accepted year-round.
