Waterman Community Chest hosted its annual donation distribution evening March 20. Local businesses and community members have made contributions during the 2016-17 fund drive. These funds are then redistributed to organizations that provide services to individuals who may directly or indirectly benefit the citizens and Waterman community in a charitable, educational, civil, social or athletic manner. More than $10,500 was distributed to many area organizations. Indian Creek and Waterman Summer Recreation, N.I.C.E. Center, Indian Creek Education Foundation, Open Hands Preschool and area Scout organizations are some of the recipients of the generosity of the Waterman community. The committee thanks everyone who made a donation this year.
