HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) – A fundraiser in Holmen today was aimed at supporting mental health in kids.
The Slice of Kindness event is a fundraiser for Kevin’s Legacy, a foundation started by a family after they lost their son to suicide.
Donations from this event go toward stocking an arts and crafts room dedicated to Kevin at the Holmen Boys & Girls Clubs.
Money also goes towards a scholarship fund for students going into mental health support fields.
Organizers say it’s their way to heal after Kevin’s loss.
“It’s that whole healing process of being able to help other people so they don’t have to go through the same heartache that they went through,” said Kevin’s Legacy Organizer Brian Sime.
Families enjoyed wood-fired pizza, rock painting, coloring contests, and therapy dogs.
