McKeowns Offer Match for Donations to TAEF
Debby McKeown looked out at the crowd filling the Barry Expo Center and fought to hold back her emotions as she and her husband, Scott, humbly accepted the Hometown Hero award from the Thornapple Area Enrichment Foundation. "We are so humbled and honored to receive this recognition," she said. "In my heart I know it is all of you here tonight who are my hometown heroes." The couple's commitment, service and caring for the community was the reason they were chosen to receive the award and they showed it again as they made yet another commitment to the community Thursday night.
Kyle McKeown announced for his parents that they were going to match any donations made to the TAEF as board discretionary funds through the end of the year, up to $5,000 in total contributions. If $5,000 is raised and added to the McKeown match, the TAEF Board would have $10,000 available to quickly respond to community and educational needs. He said he hopes it's an incentive for some who have already been donors to give again and for new donors to be inspired to give.
"We're reaching our goals," said Kyle who will end his term as a TAEF board member this year.
"We want to be able to reach individuals who aren't otherwise being helped."
