Burneson Builders Club plays Santa's helpers
The Westlake Burneson Middle School Builders Club spent a night of Christmas shopping for their adopted family. The Builders Club is a sponsored youth group of the Westlake Kiwanis Club teaching young people leadership and values of community service by caring for others. Other recent projects were collecting candy for U.S. servicemembers overseas and food drives for the Westlake Community Assistance program.
The Builders Club raises money for their service projects through fundraising projects such as car washes and selling doughnuts in school.
