HARD AT WORK: President of Key Club Evan Seder unloads sandwiches at homeless shelter.

 In the crowded cafeteria, volunteers come together to make over 150 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, all to help out those in need at a local shelter. This is just one of the many community service activities that Key Club has hosted this year, and there are still more to come. 

     Established in 1925, the Key Club organization has grown to facilitate over 1,000 clubs in 45 countries, and has over 20,000 student members. As an international organization, the club has taught students to take on leadership roles, through making positive impacts on the school and community.

     “Key Club has allowed me to help the homeless, for example,” Freshman Class Representative Dean Nefise said. “We provide them with food and supplies through our drives. As a board member I am looking forward to hosting my own service project”

     Not only does participating in the club’s charitable events and drives benefit the less fortunate, but it also rewards each participant with opportunities for community service hours. Additionally, participating in events and contributing ideas could eventually lead to a future board position and other opportunities within the organization.

     “People should join Key Club because it’s an easy way to spend time helping out the community and it’s also a great way to get community service hours, which you need to graduate,” senior Evan Seder said. “As the club president, I’ve been able to hold meaningful drives such as our Thanksgiving drive, as well as our sandwich drive,”

If you are interested in joining Key Club, you can reach out to the club sponsor, Mathematics teacher Mark Butler, or to a board member. Membership spots are open until March. 

“General meetings are every first and third Thursday of the month,” Seder said. “Or visit the Key Club table at the next club fair to join.”
