The Cerebral Palsy Research Foundation (CPRF) of Kansas is a United Way of Bourbon County agency.

FortScott.Biz is providing a series featuring each agency in the coming weeks.

United Way is primarily funded through donations from local businesses when employees agree to donate an amount through payroll deductions.

Gina Shelton, president of United Way of Bourbon County said the cost of a purchased soft drink, one dollar if it was payroll deducted by many people, would help the agency meet its 2018 Campaign goal of $50,000.

The following is from an interview with Kacee Shuler, director of public relations with Cerebral Palsy Research Foundation of Kansas.
