When Kiwanis calls for help, Key Club answers!
Key Club members participated in Kiwanis One Day events on October 23 along with their sponsoring Kiwanis clubs, completing projects that included park cleanups and food drives.
In the California-Nevada-Hawaii District, the Kiwanis Club of Los Gatos, California, worked with members of Los Gatos High School on a trail cleanup. More than 75 people volunteered to clean up Oak Meadow Park.
The Key Club members also put their heads together and came up with a contest for K-Kids to win pumpkins, said Nancy Pearson, a Los Gatos Kiwanis Club member who helped organize the event.
Another California project saw Key Club members in Thousand Oaks help with a park cleanup that included a canned food drive and an opportunity to paint kindness rocks and write letters for a local make-a-wish group. Volunteers collected more than 70 cans of food. The Thousand Oaks High School Key Club, Los Cerritos Builders Club and Weathersfield K-Kids club participated in the project.
