Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. What makes Key Club so successful is the fact that it is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities. It's a great way to help your school and community, meet friends, and gain leadership skills.

Caring – Our Way of Life

Key Club Announcements and Opportunities:

Below are directions for our last project opportunity of the summer! They're from Rahil! Enjoy!

Hey Key Clubbers, hope you all are safe, healthy, and staying proactive during this time. As you know your other officers have given opportunities for service hours throughout the summer, and I am going to be concluding our Summer Projects, but we will have more coming as the year begins. That being said, I have contacted an organization called Volunteer Prince William, and they are in need of encouraging and cheerful cards for their senior citizens. Due to the pandemic, they have Senior citizens stuck at home, that are unable to go out and live their happy lives as usual with their friends and family, as well as many of their senior volunteers who are unable to go out to volunteer with their friends and help the community, which they strive to do. They will distribute the cards with their Meals on Wheels food distribution.

 

For the Senior Citizens isolated at home:

-They are hoping for at least 230 cards, for their recipients,

-The gender ratio is unsure, so try to keep it generally generic, Statements such as "Thinking of You", "Stay Strong", "Somebody Cares",- things along that line.

 

For the Senior Citizens who are unable to volunteer:

-Again they are hoping for at least 30 cards for these Seniors

-Again, keep them generic, statements like "Thank you for all you do", "I know you hope to be volunteering again soon", "Hang in there" (Statements that thank them for their service and that lean towards Volunteering)

 

General Directions:

Try to write at least one sentence/statement, but if you wish to do more, there are no objections. 

- Try to add some color, drawings, or a design to your card (make them look good),

-Try to keep your writing and drawings proportional to the card, So that majority of the card isn't empty (fill them up),

-This goes without saying, but keep away from Offensive language, and anything that might offend someone,

-It can be done on any type of paper, just try to keep the size at least the same or smaller than half a sheet of regular printer paper, and make it on plain white paper.

 

Each Card, whether for the Volunteering Citizens or Isolated Citizens, is worth 0.25 hours, so 4 cards are worth 1 hour, with a maximum of 4 hours, so 16 cards. there will be a bin out front of the school, where you can drop them off. Keep your cards together and secure them, with maybe a plastic bag or paperclip, but try not to damage them, with staples and such.

Attach an hours sheet, with all the basic information, but add your number of cards, and whether they are for the Volunteering Citizens or the Isolated Citizens, and if you've done both, then attach them to separate hours sheets.

Thanks Again Key Clubbers, and I cant wait to see em'
