Webb City Cares event provides aid to kids in need

News

Residents walked laps for a local organization aimed at helping students in the Webb City school district.

Saturday was the Seventh Annual Webb City Cares Fun Walk at Webb City High School.     

For those not walking, kids could participate in games, inflatables, and face painting. 

Originally the walk was held at the stadium, but is now at the dome to keep the event going regardless of weather conditions.

It’s the largest fundraiser for the organization, with money going towards paying for special projects that Webb City Cares does to help kids every school year.

Jesse Degonia, director of Webb City Cares, says, “Webb City has an amazing community. We have a ton of support. We have over 10 faith based partners. We have over 40 business partners. And all of them come together to make sure the kids here have their needs meet.”

Typically, this event raises roughly $14,000 for Webb City Cares each year.
