Variety has been chosen for two years in a row to meet with students at Kewaskum High School to take part in a philanthropy class sponsored by Main Street Philanthropy.  During the class, along with other charities, Variety is able to discuss our Mission, children and families we have served, and our funding plans for the year.  In each of the two years we have been selected to receive donations from this class.  Across two years the Kewaskum students have gifted Variety nearly $2,000.00. It's great, children helping children.
