Kiwanis Trash Bash

Come to the Kiwanis Trash Bash on May 12 from 8am-4pm! It is located just east of golf course on Main Street in Jenks-almost to Elwood.

We need teams of 2 working 2 hours shifts all day long. The goal is to collect money, direct traffic, and help unload large items if necessary. This is Kiwanis’ largest fundraiser and it is also used (in part) to provide scholarships. It is also really fun!

Feeding Families at the Jenks Community Food Bank

While the Jenks Community Food Bank is coordinating to feed the students of the Jenks School District that are in need during the teacher walkout, they also need help to distribute food to the families that regularly come to the food bank on Wednesday’s. The distribution will start at the food bank but may need to move to the dining hall at the high school.  They only need 10 volunteers to volunteer from 9:45-noon so sign up fast! It’s a great way to spend a few of your hours during the walkout.  Contact me at hungerelimination@jenkskeyclub.org if you have any questions.

Thank you for your help!!!

Feeding Our Trojans

In the likely event of a school closure next week, there will be families in the Jenks community that will need assistance with food throughout the day, especially the students benefiting from free or reduced lunches. The Jenks Community Food Bank needs your help to donate food or volunteer to feed our Trojans in the event of a school closure.

The Jenks Food Bank website (jenksfoodbank.org) has pages dedicated to this project. In the sidebar, there is a link to the Feeding Our Trojans: Project 4424 that has all the information outlining the food items needed, where to donate, how to donate funds, etc.

Before volunteering at the Jenks Community Food Bank, if you have never volunteered there before, make sure to fill out the volunteering form. If you are under the age of 18, you will need a parent/guardian to sign it. You can fill it out at the Food Bank or find the form on the website under volunteers.

Address: 324 West Aquarium Place, Jenks, Oklahoma(One block south of Main Street in Jenks).

Please help in whatever way you can and email the Jenks Community Food Bank or me if you have any questions!
