Holiday Shopping Spree
WLCA 89.9 Radio station located on the campus of Lewis and Clark Community College sponsors a “Shopping Spree” for deserving club members. Each year 50 youth are selected to participate based on need, attendance, and program participation. Each youth receives $50 to spend on themselves and or loved ones. Special Thanks to Mike Lemons and his students for the continuous support for this program.
Club Christmas Party
The club hosts a party for more than 100 club members between the ages of 6-11 years old, with assistance from the Alton High School Student Council. All club members in attendance receive a Christmas gift (provided by Community Christmas) and participate in exciting holiday-themed activities.
