Caine Grants awarded forĀ 2018 Christmas season

Volunteers with the Knightstown Cheer Guild assemble Christmas baskets. The Knightstown Cheer Guild is one of four recipients of the 2018 Harold E. and Imogene M. Caine Grant.

The Henry County Community Foundation has chosen the recipients for the Harold E. and Imogene M. Caine Memorial Fund Grants for 2018. The Caines were residents of Mt. Summit and regular supporters of Toys for Tots.

This year, Caine grants are being awarded to four programs to benefit Henry County children. Grants have been awarded to the Christian Love Help Center, Knightstown Cheer Guild, Inc., Middletown/Fall Creek Township EMS and Westminster Community Center.

“We are proud to support these organizations who are working to provide a Merry Christmas for our local children through the Caine’s Field of Interest fund,” said Henry County Community Foundation President Beverly Matthews.

Harold and Imogene Caine wanted to continue their legacy by giving needy local children gifts at the holidays and chose to establish a Field of Interest fund to assist children in their Last Will and Testament. While Mr. Caine passed in 2001, the Caines’ spirit of Christmas endures, lighting up the face of a child with gifts of clothing, toys, and food on Christmas morning. Since 2002, the Harold E. and Imogene M. Caine Memorial Fund has provided holiday cheer for over 3,200 Henry County children. 

Field of Interest funds are established by a donor to support a general purpose or specific geographic area for which funds are to be spent. The Foundation makes grants to appropriate programs or organizations to honor the donor’s wishes.
