End of Year Clothing Drive for JHS Clothing Closet

Hey Key Clubbers,

I can’t believe that the year has almost come to an end, you all have helped our community this year in so many great ways. We have one more big volunteering opportunity that we hope you all will be a part of.

Our school has a clothing closet that is used to provide our very own students with clothes when they are in need. As the year comes to an end the closet needs to be restocked and we need your help to do so. The closet is in need of everything so feel free to donate any good condition clothes that you have. If you are donating socks or undergarments they need to be a new pack from the store.

Each item of clothing will get you the following points:

Shoes: 5 points per pair
New Pack of Socks: 2 points per pack
New Pack of Undergarments: 2 points per pack
Shirts: 1 point each
Shorts: 1 point each
Hoodies and Jackets: 3 points each
Pants, Jeans, and Leggings: 2 points each
Hats, gloves, and other accessories: 1 point each

If you don’t know which category your item falls within just pick whichever is the closest.

All you have to do is stop by the nurses office with your donations and scan the QR code that they have ready. This code will take you to a google form that you need to fill in to get your points for volunteering. Make sure to take a picture of your donations and fill in how many points you earned. Thank you for making the world around you a better place.

Kiwanis 2022 Trash Bash 05/14

Hey Key Clubbers,

This is just a reminder that the 2022 Kiwanis Trash Bash is tomorrow 05/14. They are looking for some key club members to help them out tomorrow. You will primarily be helping to make things run smoothly throughout the event and will not be asked to pick up trash. Instead you will have the opportunity to greet visitors, handle money, and most importantly talk and make connections with members of Jenks Kiwanis (an adult service club similar to our own club).

The Trash Bash will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the corner of Main Street and Locust Street, just east of Southlakes Golf Course (roughly 1315 W. Main St.). The day will be broken up into 2 hour shifts so feel free to show up anytime between 8 and 4 to help out. Thank you for your service and we hope to see you all there.
