Here at Broadneck, there is a club called Key Club that meets every Wednesday, either maroon or grey block, whichever one works for each member, to better the community by organizing and having fundraisers, and donating items to the less fortunate in our community. Their calling in life is helping people.
Key Club tries to better the world one little action at a time. They give up their time to figure out what to do to help those who struggle in our community.
“Well, I am all about service and giving back to the community,” said Ms.Owens, the class advisor to key club.
Key club has done good deeds over the year for the community. For example, they went to the lighthouse shelter in Annapolis and served hot food to the homeless.
“After serving dinner, [the homeless community] included me in a circle of prayer, and I was so touched that I could be part of something so big,” said Kajal Patel, the vice president of Key Club.
This school year they have done backpack buddies, cards for soldiers overseas, bracelets for children in Saint Judes hospital, a book drive for Tyler Heights Elementary, and a food drive.
“Backpack Buddies is a great organization that gives food to people in our community who need it, especially to little kids because they need all the food that they can get,” said Sara McCoy, the president of Key Club.
But more community service opportunities are coming up.
“Coming up soon we will be doing the Maryland book drive, packing lunches for the Lighthouse Shelter, and making blankets for Meals on Wheels, which is an organization that delivers food to homebound elderly people,” said McCoy.
If you want to get involved in Key Club, they meet every Wednesday, maroon or grey block. It will make you feel good that you are helping other people.
“You can always ask us and join to make a difference,” said Emily Soto the co-service coordinator.
