"Our philosophy at It Takes a Community Foundation is that it takes a community to sustain a community," says Lewis. "With diminishing public services and towns in crisis, we are looking for ways to support local groups that strengthen, engage and enrich the communities near our home in western Massachusetts. The R.H. Conwell Community Education Center is certainly one of them. We fought against the school's closing two years ago, when the state's misappropriation of funds would have forced the kids from Worthington and the surrounding areas to bus one hour each way to school and back. The community pulled together to reopen the school but it takes donations, corporate sponsors, grants and multiple fundraisers such as this one to keep the doors open for these kids."
