As a continuation of the Clothe a Child Program and the School Supplies Program, Kelly Olsen, a teacher at Christiansburg Middle School and a Kiwanis member and Ernie Wade, a Kiwanis member presented two cards in the amount of $550 each to Jason Garretson, Principal.
These two programs started several years ago at all the Christiansburg schools to serve those in need are on-going programs. Once the schools use up the funds on the cards, they let the Kiwanis club know and the cards are replaced. Kiwanis funds the card for $500 and Wal-Mart adds $50.
Funding for service projects such as these are raised by fundraising events such as the Kiwanis Wilderness Trail Festival, which is held the third Saturday of September each year.
