Greetings, PNW Key Clubbers,
I’m sure you are looking forward to the Holiday break as much as I am! I know this final stretch can be a stressful time, so try to remember what’s waiting just around the corner.
Similarly, as our 2022 year comes to a close, I want to take some time to give some shout-outs to clubs across our District. This week, I’m honored to spotlight Roseberg High School Key Club in Division 74.
Recently, Roseberg High School received the Youth Opportunities Fund – a grant given by Key Club International to help clubs fund high impact service projects. With this additional funding they received, they’ve been able to start a Campus Clothing Closet. Let’s learn more about this project from their Club’s Vice President, Sylvia Eckman!
“Our chapter started a clothing closet on our campus several years ago and just recently we have been able to see a big influx of visitors. With the Youth Opportunities Fund, we are going to help jump start a campus clothing closet at a local middle school that mimics the clothing closet we started on our high school campus three years ago. It is a closet located on the middle school campus that will provide clean clothing, underwear, school supplies, and hygiene products to students and staff. Our Key Club chapter is working side by side with the middle school to maintain the closet and keep a continuous flow of donations coming in. We are super grateful for the support of Kiwanis and our community in this project to help support our peers and build a stronger school community.”
Hats-off to Sylvie and the rest of Roseberg Key Club for putting this project together!
