However, in order to raise those funds, it took a strong group of people to rally support for the cause, go out and find ways to collect money, and in many cases, lend a helping hand to build such places as the Kiwanis Café, boys and girls dorms, or dining hall.  A great community of folks can be the guiding force in accomplishing a lot of things, and at the same time play a vital role helping in times of disaster or a need in town.  Through all of that hard work as a community, the results in the end following a successful fundraiser can not only aid a great cause, but may have a ripple effect for years to come.
