Each year representatives from schools and various agencies appear, in person, before the Crusade Advisory Panel to answer questions about their grant requests. Earlier in the week, Anita Goode, Director of Special Education, made the trip to Louisville, KY, to explain the request from Adair County Schools for $62,000 to purchase a new wheel chair accessible special needs bus.
Brandon Lewis, Crusade Chairman for Columbia-Adair County, has been following the progress on the grant very closely and met with Goode on Thursday.
"Each and every year the citizens of Adair County open their pocketbooks and the Crusade is always good to take care of us", Lewis said.
"We work all year long to raise money, way before the big roadblock and televised event in June. One example is the Crusade Golf Scramble, coming up at the Pines the first of May." Another big fundraiser is the Columbia/Adair County Fire Department's big pancake breakfast in late fall."
Good expressed appreciation for the work Adair County's fire departments, The Columiba/Adair County Fire Department, The Breeding Area Volunteer Fire Department, and the Knifley Area Fire Department do to raise money for the Crusade for Children. "Without them, none of this would be possible", she said.
Since agency grant requests far exceed donations to the Crusade each year, the Crusade panel has difficult decisions to make, but Adair County has always fared well. Once the hearings are complete, the advisory panel determines which agencies receive Crusade donations. Goode says the school district should receive a response from the Crusade Advisory Panel in August, 2011.
