For Circle K, Jean Dean Reading is Fundamental was offically adopted as the District Project in the Summer of 2010 with an initial goal of $5,000 to pay off the warehouse in Opelika, Alabama. Circle K in Alabama has a long history of working with the Jean Dean RIF program by originally establishing the Tri-K Service Day and reading countless books to children with their Kiwanis Sponsors. Following national cuts to the Reading is Fundamental Program in 2010, the Alabama District Circle K’s commitment was turned into the One Spark Campaign to help fill that gap. The One Spark Campaign is a muliyear initiative to encourage the Clubs of the Alabama District to embark on a new era of partnership with Jean Dean RIF. Over a five year period, the Alabama District dedicated to providing funds for one month of book distributions each year. That equals to roughly $50,000 total or $10,000 per year.
