The Kiwanis Club of Carlisle distributed blueberries Tuesday to those who ordered them during the annual campaign.

Customers picked up the 10-pound boxes at Project SHARE.

The sale dates to 2003 when the Kiwanis Club of Carlisle was looking for a fundraiser to help the club support its mission while offering something in return.

Neighboring clubs in Adams, Franklin and York counties now sell berries as do Kiwanis clubs in the State College area.

The blueberries that were delivered Tuesday came from New Jersey.

The Kiwanis Club mission assists youths and children. Its new campaign is “Learn 2 Read, Read 2 Learn” in which the club provides four books a year to each kindergarten and second-grade pupil in the Carlisle Area School District.

In addition, the club sponsors the honors banquet and Warm the Children, and rings the bell for the Salvation Army at Christmas.

The club was also instrumental in developing LeTort Park on East Pomfret Street in the 1950s.
