MEDFORD, Ore. — After financial troubles, Kid Time in downtown Medford said it will remain open. Right now, an upwards of $70,000 has been raised through donations to keep the non-profit facility up and running.
Although the organization is still $30,000 away from its $100,000 goal. It says it will be able to pay the bills to stay open with the money already raised. Officials with Kid Time said they are thankful for the community support.
“I knew people in the community really appreciated what it was that we do here,” said Kid Time executive director, Sunny Spicer. “I think the challenging part is that they didn’t understand how we were funded or that programs like ours do need funding… so getting the word out that we do need support… the response has been tremendous.”
To help save money, kid time has been reaching out to local businesses to sponsor exhibits. If they don’t raise the $30,000 by the end of March, some programs may be cut.
