BRANSON, Mo. – Hundreds of Taney County youth will benefit from the $1,000 donation presented on Tuesday to the not-for-profit Christian Action Ministries through the CenturyTel Clarke M. Williams Charitable Foundation. The funds will support the Clothe-A-Child Program.
This is the 23rd year that CAM has sponsored the Clothe-A-Child program. It is part of the Taney County School Readiness Fair, a cooperative effort of CAM, Ozarks Area Community Action Corporation and the Salvation Army. Hundreds of children in need will receive a new outfit for school, improving self-esteem and enabling greater academic success.
“The Charitable Foundation was established by CenturyTel based on the belief that companies have an obligation to improve the quality of life where they do business,” said Pamela Anderson, Marketing Communication Manager for South Missouri.
Following the example set by Williams, the company’s founder, the foundation contributes to projects that improve the well-being of people in need. The projects range from substance abuse prevention to disaster relief and technological development. This year, the foundation will award approximately $124,000.
The CenturyTel Experience Center is a drop-off point Christian Action Ministries’ “Under Cover Program,” providing new socks and underwear for Taney County school-aged children. For more information on the program, call Christian Action Ministries at 334-1157 or visit www.ChristianActionMinistries.org.
