Crusade for Children kicks off this weekend
By Donald Hare
It's time for the 67th Annual Crusade for Children. We have mailed letters to all churches in Adair County. The Columbia-Adair County Fire Department will be out starting this weekend:
The money raised in Columbia-Adair County comes back to our county 100% dollar for dollar in the form of grants. Grants are made to non-profit agencies, schools, and hospitals that help children up to the age of 18. These grants can be used to fund specific programs or purchase equipment that provide direct benefits to the children.
The crusade was established in 1954 by WHAS-TV. It raises money for agencies, schools, and hospitals to better the lives of special needs children. Special needs defined as physical, mental, emotional, and medical needs. Since the crusade was established over $165 million has been raised. Fire Departments raise over 50 percent of the money each year by staging roadblocks and other events. Millions of children have been helped.
