Kiwanis Young Professional members held a Paint with Purpose fundraiser in May at the Inner Peace for the Arts in downtown Lumberton with local artist Brianna Goodwin. Funds raised at the event enabled members to buy items for the UNC Health Southeastern donation. Among those items were a car seat, Pack N Play, clothes, blankets, formula, toys, baby wash, lotion, wipes, diapers, and gas cards. Diapers were donated by Robeson County Church and Community Center and gas cards were donated by Oliver Oil Company.
