The District's Safe Schools initiative to place trauma kits throughout its schools and offices, received another much-welcomed financial boost from community members, this time through the generosity of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Catawissa Post #8306 and the Catawissa Valley Lions Club. Representatives of the groups recently traveled to Southern Columbia to deliver checks totaling $1,500 to appreciative school officials. To date, $3,000 has been donated to this effort. The District is very appreciative and thankful for the support and generosity extended to this project.
