The United Way of Scioto and Adams County presented a check for $500 to Scioto County Board of Developmental Disabilities (SCBDD) and STAR, Inc. to aid in the volunteer efforts of the organizations’ !MPACT team and Kiwanis Aktion Club. The group travels and provides a variety of volunteer services as a way to give back and assist organizations throughout the county.
