The Coast Fork Kiwanis Club hosted representatives from the Food4Kids program, Creswell High School Key Club and Creswell’s departing district superintendent for lunch recently at Los Cabos Restaurant.
The group of over 20 Kiwanians from South Lane County heard Food4Kids volunteers Lisa Ross and Alesha Culp discuss the program operated through volunteers at Creswell School District.
The program has grown in the last year . More than 100 of the district’s younger students are routinely provided food on a weekly basis to supplement what they have at home. On behalf of the club, Lisa and Alesha were presented with a $500 contribution through the Creswell Tool Box to the Food4Kids program.
Seven of the Creswell High School Key Club members attended the lunch meeting. The students and advisor shared some of their ongoing and upcoming activities.
Superintendent Todd Hamilton spoke to the Kiwanis about his experiences over the past eight years in the Creswell community. The school superintendent is leaving Creswell to assume the same position with the Springfield School District. Hamilton encouraged the Kiwanis Club to keep contributing to the community and cited examples of what makes our community so great.
