Village Center for the Arts in New Milford has announced the receipt of a donation from Union Savings Bank and Kimberly-Clark Corporation.

The money -- $1,000 from the bank and $200 from K-C --will be used to help support the Club Mud After-School program, providing scholarships to New Milford area children who would otherwise have to go home to an empty house.

Anyone interested in being considered for one of the scholarship to Club Mud, should contact Village Center for the Arts at 860-354-4318 or Social Services at 860-355-6079.
