All 62 students enrolled in the Sun Prairie Media Center’s unique KIDS-4 program are sporting brand new KIDS-4 shirts thanks to a $250 donation from the Sun Prairie Optimist Club and a matching $250 donation from Titley and Associates, an Allstate Agency! “This gift is tremendously generous,” said Sun Prairie Media Center director Jeff Robbins. “In years past, the shirts were an additional cost for families enrolled in KIDS-4.
