Established in 2006, Kids Club serves elementary students and families by providing tutoring, after-school activities and meals for children in the program. In addition to running bus services from local schools to the main campus on Hickory Avenue, Kids Club also operates on-site programs at some New Braunfels ISD and Comal ISD campuses.
To celebrate completing fifth grade, students were honored with a drive-thru ceremony.
“This is a big milestone for these kids,” said Christian Ministries Executive Director Brett Mosher.
Students were congratulated by volunteers and teachers who had worked with them throughout their time in the program.
Though students graduate out of the program, many return as reading volunteers, tutors or teachers after their time at Kids Club.
“Many former Kids Club students come back as volunteers,” Mosher said. “Once a Kids Club kid, always a Kids Club kid.”
According to Mosher, students can be recommended for the program by teachers, principals or counselors and are able to attend free-of charge through donations to the ministry.
Each family was also offered groceries and pizzas that were donated by Cicis Pizza.
