Kiwanis Club donates $500 to CCC

The Kiwanis Club of Westminster recently donated $500 to Carroll Community College in support of the college's First Start Program.

The First Start Program helps parents, respite-care workers, child and family care workers, teaching assistants and teachers of children from birth to 3 years old with developmental disabilities.

This is the second time this semester that the college has offered the program for Carroll County residents. Individuals associated with these children will be offered scholarship money for the First Start course of study.
