Memories & Milestones

Don Kaufman hands Kate Hardaker more money than her father gave her in support of nonprofit For the Good.

Helping For the Good

My name is Kate Hardaker, and I am a seventh-grade student at Riverview.

For the Good is a local nonprofit that goes to Kenya and educates people, especially girls, on the importance of education and also provides sanitary supplies.

Prior to her most recent trip out to Kenya, Kayce Anderson, the director of For the Good, received an urgent request to bring underwear for girls at one of the schools they support.

Kayce put me in charge of raising $1,000 quickly. I decided to ask a few of my dad’s friends to donate $100 since he was willing to donate only $99.

In the end we raised just under $1,000. We would like to thank the following who proved they are more generous than my dad: Don Kaufman, attorney at law; Chad Lee (Balcomb and Green); Megan Malone, CPA; Susie Meraz, Bay Equity; Rob Meinert, First Bank; Rich Huttenhower, Home Team Inspections; Ruth and Jim Barnes, Shaklee Independent Distributors; (and my grandparents).
