Kimball Electronics in Jasper, Indiana, has announced its commitment to donate $100,000 to the Southwestern Indiana Child Advocacy Center Coalition’s (SWICACC) $1.1 million capital campaign.

The $1.1 million campaign will support SWICACC's efforts to relocate its regional child advocacy center in Jasper to the former Fifth Street School building.

"Community support is imperative for a project of this magnitude. We are beyond grateful not only for this gracious contribution, but also that Kimball Electronics sees this need and shares our vision to create a better future for our youth. Our new center will positively impact Southern Indiana’s generations to come," says SWICACC Director Tammy Lampert.

“We so appreciate SWICACC and the many services they provide to help children who are abused and their focus on education designed to prevent future abuse,” says Don Charron, Chairman and CEO, Kimball Electronics.

The non-profit organization, which was formed in 2009, provides forensic interviewing services to children reporting abuse in Dubois, Crawford, Daviess, Martin, Orange, Perry, and Spencer counties.

SWICACC says the relocation of its Jasper facility is expected to greatly enhance the organization's ability to provide a safe reporting location for victims of child abuse.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
