Sky Wars recently held its 15th annual invitational fireworks championship that supported two nonprofit organizations. The event raised $3,500 for nonprofit partner Concerned Citizens for Animal Care of Warren County and its “Raise the Woof” campaign. AGAPE received a total donation valued at $2,037.55 from a canned food drive combined with monetary contributions. The donation will provide 2,993 meals to the Warrenton, Mo. nonprofit organization. Founded in 2001, the Concerned Citizens for Animal Care (CCAC) of Warren County is working to establish a new no-kill animal shelter for the area. For more information, visit http://www.ccacwc.com. AGAPE was founded in 1996 and provides food to individuals and families who face food insecurity. It is the only full-service nonprofit agency dedicated to hunger and poverty issues in Warren County, Mo.
