Members of Avon City Council took a moment for a little levity for a good cause by donning red noses at the start of Monday’s council meeting.
City Council President Craig Witherspoon spearheaded the gesture by joining the Walgreen Drug Store promotion to support charities dedicated to childhood poverty.
Comic Relief is the charity behind the Red Nose Day Fund. All money raised goes to the Red Nose Day Fund. The Red Nose Day Fund provides grants annually to charities who demonstrate they are doing work in the US and overseas to help end child poverty.
From now until June 3, Walgreens customers can participate and show their support by purchasing a Red Nose for $1, with all profits from all sales benefitting Red Nose Day.
