The local Knights of Columbus Council, based out of the Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church in Dawsonville, is continuing a partnership with the local Kroger that is focused on meeting the needs of students served by the Exceptional Children department at Dawson County Schools. The partnership began a little over a year ago and is part of the Knights’ longtime support of autism and special needs programs for children throughout the state. The goal of this year’s fundraising program is to generate $10,000 to support the needs of the Exceptional Children department for planning, special equipment, instruction and community involvement activities for all children who benefit from the programs offered.
