I have an amazing volunteering opportunity for you. As we all know, Thanksgiving is coming up. We are so excited for turkey, mashed potatoes and home cooked food. Well, not everyone gets a chance to experience that. Especially those who are homeless. In order to help people who normally wouldn’t be able to celebrate this holiday, we are going to bring it to them.
The Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless is a wonderful organization that lets groups come in and serve food to about 150 homeless people in Tulsa. We have set up a date to do this. Wednesday November 23rd, 2016. This is during our break, so some of you will be out of town. For those of you who will be in town, I urge you to sign up for this! It is a fantastic opportunity to not only do service, but help someone have a good holiday.
More information can be found in the google doc link below. Please take a moment to look over that and hopefully sign up! If you have any questions, please email me.
Hey Key Clubbers, on Monday October 24th I will begin collecting donations for the goody bags for children cancer patients at St. Francis Hospital. We will be collecting scarves, hats, head scarves, books for children-teens, art supplies (crayons, colored pencils, sketch books, etc.), and any small trinkets like stuffed animals and the like. For every 2 items donated you will receive a point, I will also be collecting cards and letters if you would like to write words of encouragement, every two of these will also be a point. Please bring your items to room 216 in the Math and Science Center (Mrs. Langley’s Room). Put all the items in a bag labeled with your name, ID number, and grade. The drive will end that following friday and we will be putting these things into goody bags and taking them to the Children’s Cancer Ward at another date to be announced. Thank you, I hope you all participate in this project. If you have questions email email@example.com, or text (918)740-9934.
I would like to send out a big thank you to everyone who signed up to time at the high school swim meets! If anyone is interested in working concessions please signup here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409084babae2da2fb6-high

The Junior Key Club in the Middle School is having their inauguration ceremony on October 25th at 7:00 PM in the Middle School Cafeteria. Please come support them! You will be awarded 1 point for attending. Questions?? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
UNICEF is a charity that helps make this world a better place for children by working to eliminate diseases and alleviate poverty. They have adopted the Trick-or-Treat project to raise money for those purposes and thus far, Trick-or-Treaters have helped to raise more than $175 million for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF since 1950.
If you would like to participate, pick up a box in Langley’s room and start collecting change throughout the month of October to Halloween. The raised money will be due on November 1st. Every $7 raised, will be awarded 1 point. The more you raise, the more points you get 🙂
The DECA Dodgeball tournament will be held on November 18th. Jenks Key Club is collecting cans/boxed meal items to participate in this. If you would like to play in the tournament, make sure to donate. We will be collecting cans now to November 4th. If it is possible, please try to donate more boxed meals than cans because it satisfies our families more, but everything will be accepted and appreciated!
- 5 cans=1 point
- 5 boxed meal items=2 points
- How do I turn these items in?
- Put cans in a bag
- Put your NAME, ID NUMBER, and GRADE on the bag
- Place the bag in Langley’s room (JMASC216) on the side counter
Here’s the PowerPoint that was presented at the October general meeting!
You’ve probably gotten a lot of emails about this already, but we need volunteers to time at swim meets!

I’d also like to send out a big thank you to all of those who volunteered this past weekend. Everyone was greatly appreciated!
