HANNIBAL, Mo. — President-elect Cassie Smith recently presented a check on behalf of the Hannibal Early Bird Kiwanis Club for $1,000 to Tamitha Ague, branch director for Foster Adopt Connect.

Foster Adopt Connect helps keep kids safe and helps break the cycle of generational child abuse and neglect. There are more than 249 foster children in Marion County alone. 

The Hannibal office, 714 Broadway, services Marion, Ralls, Pike and Monroe Counties.  For more information, visit their web site at FosterAdopt Connect Cares for Missouri/Kansas Kids and Families.
